Spurgeon and the Drunk “Convert”

The story goes that Charles Spurgeon, the great pastor in nineteenth-century Longdon, was walking down the street one day when a man who was drunk and leaning on a lamppost yelled out to him:

“Hey, Mr. Spurgeon, do you remember me?”

“No, why should I?”

“Because I’m one of your converts!”

Spurgeon’s response? “Well, you must be one of mine; you’re certainly not one of the Lord’s.”
