"We look for a day when the dwellers in all lands shall learn righteousness, shall trust in the Saviour, shall worship Thee alone O God and 'shall glorify Thy Name'. The modern nation has greatly dampened the zeal of the church for missions and the sooner it is shown to be unscriptural the better, for the cause of God. It neither consorts with prophecy, honours God nor inspires the church with ardour. Far hence it be driven".
C H Spurgeon - (1885) - Treasure of David Volume 4 - (p102).
