Astăzi am discuatt cu studenții de la Master în TEologie Baptistă ȘI despre relația dintre TEXT – Biserică, predicarea în biserica locală, aplicarea textului, rolul hermenuticii corecte în rezolvarea unor dispute …
Iată cîteva capete de început sau continuare a discuției.
De ce unii predicatori sînt mai buni decît alții? Iată un posibil capăt de cugetare AICI.
Pay the Price
Few students I teach fail to get the meaning of the text. They often demonstrate exegetical and hermeneutical sophistication that astounds me. They are serious about the Word.
But they make the mistake of thinking that if they just feel that way, and if they just say the words, the preaching will take care of itself. And if they keep thinking that way, if they insist on “data dump” sermons that just concentrate on the content and not also on the delivery, there’s not much I can do for them. They will be the kind of preachers they want to be.
But if someone has a burning calling, teachable spirit, passionate heart, and reckless abandon to pay the price to preach well, then not even the limitation of his own background, personality, or natural talents will keep him from preaching the Word of God with power.
