Podcast Ep.112: The Pastor and His Preaching

Al Mohler’s book, He is Not Silent, speaks of how Contemporary preaching suffers from:

– a loss of confidence in the power of the word 

– an infatuation with technology 

– embarrassment before the biblical text 

– an emptying of biblical content 

– an absence of the gospel 

My cohost, Dan Stegeman and I want to address these concerns by talking about the pastor and his preaching. Our longing is that pastors get back to solid expository preaching, and that preaching becomes central to the worship experience.

Podcast Ep.68: The Gospel and the Alliance (My own musings)

In this podcast I muse over the state of the gospel, post-Covid. I also encourage the pastor to commit to gospel-centered, Biblically-solid expository preaching. My suggestion is; the church that will remain strong are those who are committed to the gospel. I also look at some of the pressures threatening the church, distracting her from her mission, and the call to remain true to the sufficiency and authority of scripture. While I speak somewhat strongly toward some drifting even in my own denomination, some of the hyperbole I use is meant to capture our attention with hope that we will all be challenged by returning to the gospel in our preaching.
