Wilson on preaching in the world

The ever provocative and insightful Doug Wilson has an interesting article on preaching here.The following is an excerpt:

George Whitefield once said that the churches of his time were dead
because dead men preached to them. We may expand the observation. The
churches are effeminate because effeminate men with wireless mikes
stroll around a platform chatting with the congregants. The churches
are leaderless because we are nervous about prophetic preaching, and
settle instead for bland and balanced leadership teams. The churches
have no sense of the numinous because men refuse to preach the
greatness and glory of the living God.

One response to this post.

  1. Insightful indeed. We are no longer preaching as a dying man to dying men. The fear of the Lord has left the Church leaving her with nothing to say but trite flatterings about herself.
