According to this quote I found on the blog - hisbarkingdog.blogspot.com Charles Haddon Spurgeon would have severe problems with being an American Baptist. He is reported to have said "To pursue union at the expense of truth is treason to the Lord Jesus Christ." It comes from The Sword and the Trowel (Nov. 1887 p. 558). hisbarkingdog.blogspot.com is the best blog relating to ABCUSA issues I have found so far. I encourage you to visit it regularly.
