Read Before Sunday!


A few thoughts before the sermon on Sunday.  When you start talking about Satan and evil personified, one either gets real interested, or roles their eyes and mutters, "Psst, one of THOSE kind of Christians."  And so, recognizing what I am going to be saying Sunday, I offer a few prefatory remarks in advance:

  • I am preaching this sermon Sunday on the reality of spiritual warfare and a very real devil.
  • I am preaching this sermon Sunday because far too many Presbyterians tend to write off the supernatural as "pre-modern thought."
  • I am preaching this sermon Sunday because far too many Presbyterians tend to think of our Faith in political/ethical categories.
  • I am preaching this sermon Sunday because far too many Presbyterians gravitate towards education and political action as the answer to all of life’s ills and woes.
  • I am preaching this sermon Sunday because sometimes, we need to peel back temporal reality and see the world as God sees it.
