From Spurgeon, the favorite quote of the session:
Do not think that soulwinning can be secured by the multiplication of baptists and the swelling size of your church. What do dispatches from the battlefields such as the following mean? Last night fourteen souls were under conviction, fifteen were justified, and eight received full sanctification.” I am weary of this public bragging, this counting of unhatched chickens, this exhibition of doubtful spoils. Lay aside such numberings of the people, such idle pretense of certifying in half a minute that which will need the testing of a lifetime.
