“Men ridicule the religion which is not uniform. I heard of a brother who claimed to have long been a teetotaler; but some doubted. When he was asked how long he had been an abstainer, he replied, ‘Off and on, for twenty years.’ You should have seen the significant smile upon all faces. An abstainer off and on! His example did not stand for much. Certain professors are Christians ‘off and on’; and nobody respects them.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXVI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1890), p. 344]
