Get Mad For Christ Is Not A Sin...

A sermon should be delivered with all honestly and sincerity.  It should not be a performance.  If a man is speaking to an audience in a sanctuary, hall, or room with poor acoustics naturally he will have to speak loudly.  If with a microphone he should speak as if he were speaking to you in a normal conversation.  In a normal conversation we speak in a normal calm tone or in an excited or angry voice as we are (one might say) moved by the spirit.  We behave as a normal God fearing Christian.  When you have a discussion with a fellow believer do you yell and scream or do you behave in a civilized manner.  If we are moved by the emotion or the importance to us to raise our voices we do so naturally as moved (but we not yell).  We yell when we wish to dominate another not when we are trying to reason with them.

 

This yelling just to be yelling is not preaching it is performing, it is acting.  It is not teaching, it is entertaining, but it is seeking amens instead of applause.

 

If I were speaking to you instead of writing some of those lines above would have been in caps or a large font because I would be speaking some of them naturally in a more excited voice (not yelling) because I became excited, not because I was acting.

 

Just one man's opinion.

 

God bless,

Larry

You can preach the truth with out opening the bible, I am sure he does preach using it.Talking from the heart, or sharing life experience can help the weaker soul or weak Christians. Preach it pastor Kidd. Thumbs up.

So Jesus has nothing to do with it?

I can lead a person to Christ, without opening my bible. It is called memorize, how can you tell a Christian is weak in the faith? Easy, they don't believe in spanking, correcting a chid. Are you one of these?

Why these great leaps of "reasoning" of late? Where in Scripture are we told that we can know if our faith (or someone else's faith) is weak based upon whether they spank their children in correcting them?

 

No matter how much Scripture we have memorized we are to do nothing of our own selves, but only in Christ, Who told us we can do nothing without Him.

I apologize, I mis-understood what you were saying.
I don't know, depends in what he did.
You know how someone is weak in the faith? They buy into a system of "theology" based in morality of works and standards and not on Christ

Myself, I don't see the benefit in a preacher turning red in the face, foaming at the mouth, screaming so loud it sounds as if his throat might rupture, spitting all over the place, running around like a monkey at the zoo, banging on things, kicking, and even sometimes running into the pews.

 

 

John are you mixed up and going to see the apes at the zoo instead of church.  

 

Might be a better choice than attending some of the new culturally acceptable and theatrical churches out there......

I don't know about all the other stuff, but loud preaching does keep the members awake. This is good... :)
