The Cigar Smoking of Charles Spurgeon, the so-called “Prince of Preachers,” Exposed by Jesse Morrell


I find it very interesting that Charles Finney did altar calls and Calvinists crucify him for that. But Charles Spurgeon smoked cigars and Calvinists defend him for that.

Give me a preacher who calls sinners to repent at the altar any day over a tobacco smoking preacher!

Even Finney, who was a contemporary of Spurgeon, knew that smoking was a sin.

1Co 3:17 – If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

“After Spurgeon’s pronouncement of his “smoking to the glory of God,” English businessmen began to market the cigars that Spurgeon smoked. Spurgeon once entered a store and saw a sign that said, ‘Spurgeon smokes!’ He also heard complaints from parents who were encouraging their children not to drink alcohol or smoke, only to receive the reply, ‘But Spurgeon does…”

Luk 17:2 – It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

It’s to bad that Charles Spurgeon never went to hear Charles Finney preach, otherwise Spurgeon might have repented at the altar.


If this is what your Christianity looks like, you need to repent.

A friend of mine used to smoke until a brother challenged him, “Can you pray over your cigarette before you smoke it and ask God to bless it to your body?”

1 Cor. 10:31 – Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Jeff Durbin and Apologia Studios should be ASHAMED of themselves for so proudly being a bad example to their own children. Shame!

This right here is the rotten fruit of Calvinism. No wonder Calvinists hate holiness preachers so much – these are men of the flesh.



Objections to Calvinism As It Is by Randolph S. Foster is a classic rebuttal to the doctrines of “Reformed Theology” from the 1800’s.  The false theology of Calvinism is refuted by the authors scriptural and rational arguments, plainly exposing the so-called “Doctrines of Grace” for what they really are. Some Christians have called this work the best book on Calvinism out there. The authors use of logic, scripture, and sarcasm makes this book a blessing to read!

  1. Spurgeon was once told tobacco was evil. He responded, “That’s why I burn it!”

    Spurgeon was impenitent. He was confronted about his smoking on multiple occasions and never repented. He was a very popular preacher (which should be a red flag from the start) and the reason people liked him was because he was eloquent, not because he was holy. He was a good public speaker, nothing more.

    I have professing christian male relatives who all smoke cigars, even the women sometimes. They glory in their expensive cuban cigars, and also their $1000 bottles of whiskey. Yet they are convinced they are saved.

  3. Calvinists be like: “I am fine with my pastor smoking cigars, but if he does altar calls I am outta here!”

  4. TB says:

    God set me free from tobacco…struggled with it for 11 years after I was saved…I’ve been free of it for 19 years now, PTL.

  5. Pastors are to be blameless the Bible says.
