The following is from Spurgeon’s sermon,
“Rubbish” No. 1156. Nehemiah 4:10.
Soon after apostolic times there came the old Roman rubbish, which in the end proved a worse hindrance to the gospel than all the
errors which had preceded it.
This Popish rubbish was found in layers; first one doctrinal error, and then another, and then another, and then another, and then another, until at this time the errors of the Church of Rome are as countless as the stars, as black
as midnight, and as foul as hell.
Her abominations reek in the nostrils of all
Christian men. Her idolatries are the scorn
of reason and the abhorrence of faith.
The iniquities of her practice, and the
atrociousness of her doctrine, almost
As the gospel is the masterpiece of God,
‘Popery’ is the masterpiece of Satan!
There can scarcely be imagined anything of
devilish craftiness or Satanic wickedness
which could be compared with her.
She is the unparalleled queen of iniquity!
Behold upon her forehead the name, Mystery,
Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and
abominations of the earth.
The church of Rome and her teachings are a
vast mountain of rubbish covering the truth.
