Heigh Presto!

(Charles Spurgeon)

I am sorry to say that there is much craftiness and trickery to be met with in the religious world.

Why, there are those who pretend to save souls by curious tricks, intricate maneuvers, and dexterous posture making! A basin of water, half-a-dozen drops, certain syllables and--Heigh! Presto!--the infant is a child of grace, and becomes a member of Christ, and an inheritor of the kingdom of heaven!

This aqueous regeneration surpasses my belief!

It is a trick which I do not understand--only the initiated can perform the beautiful piece of magic, which excels anything ever attempted by the wizards!
