Morning Coffee

06 Nov

Here are the stories I put in my coffee this morning.

  • Poverty in the Prosperity Gospel
  • If health and wealth, power and prestige is what God desires for His people, than the early church failed miserably; often suffering persecution and poverty.

  • What Does Amen Mean?
  • It has been said that the Methodists like to shout “Fire,” the Baptists like to shout “Water,” and the Presbyterians like to softly say, “Order, order.” Nevertheless, in spite of the idiosyncrasies of various ecclesiastical persuasions, the function of the word amen far transcends denominational usages in the modern era.

  • 6 Reasons Not to Abandon Expository Preaching
  • Our aim as preachers is not to be the most erudite scholar of the age. Our aim is not to titillate and amuse. Our aim is not to build a big church. Our aim is to take the sacred text, explain what it means, tie it to other scriptures so people can see the whole a little better, and apply it to life so it bites and heals, instructs, and edifies.
