Pilgrim’s Progress: Doubting Castle and the Delectable Mountains

Today we watch Christian and Hopeful seek the easy way out of difficult times only to end out in great difficulty and deep depression. It is only when they remember to pray (and subsequently remember the Promise of God) that they are able to escape Giant Despair. From thence they head to the Delectable Mountains, where the shepherds Knowledge, Experience, Watchful, and Sincere give wise guidance and insights to the pilgrims.

    The account of Christian and his friend in Doubting Castle and how they escaped from their despair by remembering and claiming the promises of God is probably my most favourite part of Pilgrim’s Progress. I have shared that section several times in the last 3 or 4 years at the Gospel Mission.

    Hi Jerry,

    Yes, that is a vital truth. It is very helpful for folks who are having trouble with assurance of salvation as well.

    BTW, be sure to check out my clarification notes there. The meaning of Mrs. Giant’s name, Diffidence, reinforces the significance of that section.
