Praisehouston.com:A professor of preaching says that pastors need more moral courage to deliver the Gospel message in today’s skeptical world.
Haddon Robinson, who currently serves as the distinguished professor of preaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass., told The Christian Post Thursday that the media is much bolder in its criticisms of the church than it used to be, and in many ways it builds upon the skepticism already found in the culture. This dramatic shift in attitude toward the church and the Bible means, to some extent, preachers may have to adjust their approach to preaching.
“When I started preaching years ago, the church had home-field advantage. People respected it. They may not have lived up to its teaching, but they would think, ‘Church is certainly a fine moral example’…that’s no longer true,” Robinson said.
