Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Nine Ways in Which Preaching is Being Undermined

Compiled from statements made during T4G Panel 2.

Mohler: [1] Through a dependence on images rather than on the Word; [2] Through speaking of “worship” and preaching as separate, rather than seeing preaching as the summit of worship; [3] Through viewing preaching as passive, rather than participatory;

Duncan: [4] Through assuming that people will be attracted to what they already find all week in the world;

Dever: [5] Not enough preparation; [6] Not enough specific application; [7] No “feed back loop” (to provide insight into strengths and weaknesses in the sermon) in place;

Mohler: [8] The idea that there must be immediate, visible results; [9] Turning to moralism or pop psychology for application.
