06 Aug

Questions:
1. How do you graciously disagree with a sermon you have heard?
2. Why do we think that pastors and preachers should not be respectfully questioned about their sermons?

    Larry,
    Throughout your Blogs you raised numerous questions, but have never given answers to any of them.
    With regard to your “Sermon” cartoon I suggest one additional question, that for a change you might answer:
    What makes a sermon a “good” sermon?
    John

      What a great question, John! It seems to me that a “good” sermon is one which leads out of the biblical text what is really there, strives to meet the needs of the congregation, and does not bore God’s people! Have you ever heard a “good” sermon, in your opinion, John? Blessings. Larry

    Hello Dr. Dixon;
    I, for one, appreciate the questions that you pose with each post. It has always stirred my thoughts and has caused me to look deeper into the content of each of your posts. Every good teacher and seminary professor that I’ve had has used this method to draw their students deeper into the content and context of the subject that they were teaching at the time. This method is a sign, that the teacher is truly gifted and is called of God to teach. I’m glad they didn’t give me all the answers. I will always appreciate the many questions that they had asked and then they let me seek the answers for myself through many hours of study and research on the particular subject being taught.
    KEEP UP, HIS GOOD WORK BROTHER;
    GOD BLESS YOU & YOUR HOUSE;

    I typically talk to my pastor and tell him which points I disagree with and why. We have similar personalities and he welcomes constructive criticism…has even stated a ‘correction’ from the pulpit after our discussions. For good or bad, I am a critical listener…not to find fault, but certainly to test truth.
