Pilgrim, Spurgeon’s comments about 1 Kings 18:21 differ markedly from yours.

On the “I have returned” thread you said, “In short, they had already made up their minds to hang on to Baal and Elijah was calling for them to repent of that vain and idolatrous worship and return to the pure worship of the God of Israel.”

In contrast, Spurgeon described them as “undecided.” You must admit that your conclusion about the people was quite different than that of Spurgeon.
