Popcorn, Cotton Candy and this Sunday’s Sermon

American Church, Encouragement

What do they all have in common?  According to Albert Mohler they are all devoid of nutrition even if they are fun to take in.  Most modern sermons are weightless, Mohler contends.  Why?  Well, I have put a link to this great article down below so you can check it out.  One of the great things Mohler does here is to define expositional preaching.  I have found that virtually every church-goer (at least here in the Bible Belt of the United States) like to boast that their pastor preaches straight from the Bible and really “digs in” and tells it how it is (which would be a layman’s description of expositional preaching).  Yet when I visit the church or listen online there is no true “digging in” whatsoever!  And do they preach the difficult and hard passages so as to “tell it like it is”?  Hardly.  Instead, the sermon is almost always a verse pulled out of context and turned into some motivational, feel-good gunk that would never be taken from that passage (or any other) if it had been read in a simple and straightforward manner.  check out Mohler’s article today.  Good stuff!
