I don’t want to build a tribe through my writing, nor be part of someone else’s tribe. I want to be in community with those who read my work and with those whose work I read.

Comment on Blind, Deaf, Dead: Taking the Metaphor Too Far. by Tim http://scribblepreach.com/2017/03/14/blind-deaf-dead-taking-the-metaphor-too-far/#comment-2970 Tue, 14 Mar 2017 16:47:47 +0000 http://scribblepreach.com/?p=3414#comment-2970 Good distinction, Nick. Sin IS the responsibility of the person committing the sin. It calls for action from us. The Bible says the proper response is kindness, as that is what God uses to bring people to repentance.

Comment on No More Channel-Flipping Sermons. by Bill http://scribblepreach.com/2017/01/10/no-more-channel-flipping-sermons/#comment-2933 Mon, 16 Jan 2017 23:19:16 +0000 http://scribblepreach.com/?p=3309#comment-2933 Ahh, the arrogance of youth. Let’s see how many good preachers we can offend by using inflammatory, insulting language and actually call their sermons “garbage”, just because they do not do it YOUR way. John MacArthur is an excellent example of using numerous scriptures to support a point.. Add Charles Stanley, & too many other preachers to count, whose sermons have helped millions of people over the years be more faithful.

Comment on No More Channel-Flipping Sermons. by Gary http://scribblepreach.com/2017/01/10/no-more-channel-flipping-sermons/#comment-2928 Sun, 15 Jan 2017 00:30:04 +0000 http://scribblepreach.com/?p=3309#comment-2928 I believe that a good sermon can include many passages that are related to, and help inform the meaning of, a pastor’s main passage. Plus it shows the congregation that the Bible is consistent in its message throughout–that Scripture is the best commentary on Scripture. I’d rather hear lots of Scriptures in a sermon than just a few verses with lots of man’s ideas and a pastor’s own thoughts. It is God’s Word that is powerful and living and active, not man’s word.
