some sermons
feel like
painful nails
torn down
a chalkboard
where is God
in that?

  1. Matthew 7:15 -17
    17. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    Now I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself were the sermons painful like nails and torn down like a chalkboard to you because they stepped on your toes about some things in your life that you need to work on, or was this a wolf in sheep’s clothing trying to harder your heart against God? Be honest with yourself because only you can answer that question. And only you and God knows your heart.

  2. @viola – I think what Liz is talking about here is the sermon we listened to a couple days ago. I don’t disagree with anything you are saying, but sermons are noise when it takes 30 minutes to mention the name Jesus and where there is but a vague reference to scripture.

    The sermon wasn’t great – I found it unpleasant also (perhaps more than Liz) but I am Christ’s and He is mine.

  3. Chris and Liz, I will help you to pray for this pastor, and that God will give him a better understanding of His word so he can bring forth his message in a way that will glorify the Lord, and not in a way that is upsetting to his sheeps. Is this pastor new and just started to preach? I am so blessed to have a pastor who stays on his knees for many hours praying and studing God’s word before he brings forth his sermons. We will stand together and believe God will show your pastor he has to do the same.
