Teaching the Word with Integrity

A friend (in this case rather more of a former colleague) posted this on Facebook.

This is great reading; the comments are better than the original article, because the comments eventually start taking issue with him.  Blogger citing blogger citing bloggers.  Occasionally one would cite a primary source. 

The point:  take the preaching of the Bible dead seriously, and don't use an illustration unless you can verify it, which means in most cases, don't use it.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is (but "probably" is not "definitely").

Note: A reader encouraged me to find and use my voice in blogging.  Thank you!
