Faithful preaching

I've been trying to catch up on some good blog reading.

Some people believe the congregation is in charge of the content of the sermons, but they are not. Some believe the preacher is in charge of it, but that is also false. The ordained minister is a minister with a delegated responsibility, and he is charged to preach something that would have been true whether or not he or every last big tither in the church agreed with it or not. The reason men veer off from the truth and wander off into myths is that they want a doctrinal system that leaves room for their lusts. But the faithful minister has none of it -- he is to be sober-minded, and prepared to catch flak. He does the work of an evangelist, not the work of a recruiter. He fulfills his ministry, and a delegated ministry it is.
