Avoiding the Wolves (Or: Exposiwhat?)


There are some people who can take a bunch of balloons, put them together, and make a statue of Stuart, the Minion.   Unfortunately, there are also lots of people, a lot of them standing behind pulpits every Sunday, who can take a collection of Scriptures and make them say what ever they want them to […]

    It’s far easier to just cut and paste some tired clichés and empty platitudes, mix in some “hoopin” and voila instant sermon.

    I’ve read Mr. Dever’s book and wholeheartedly recommend it. The main obstacle IMO to expository preaching is lack of commitment to it from the pulpit.

One example of commitment that comes to mind is when I heard John MacArthur talk about how it took him 43yrs. to preach through the New Testament!

    These greedy lying pulpit pimps don’t know the word of God. They can’t preach what they don’t know. They don’t know, their sheeple don’t know either, so it’s like the blind leading the blind. The members of these kinds of churches are just as ignorant of God’s word as are the lying preachers, therefore, they can’t determine that their “pastor” is not knowledgeable of the true word of God.
