This is exactly why there are many false teachers out there. If it sounds good, tickles their ears, and brings in more to the church then they’ll speak what people would rather hear than God’s truth. His Word confronts us and many people just don’t want to be confronted. 😦 I call then “feel good preachers.”

I fear you have nailed it Sue. Too many give in and preach just what folks want to hear,too.

The opposite problem also arises. A lot of people in congregations take offense when a preacher preaches what the Word says. They only want to hear certain things and take offense to being taught that they need to make some changes to their lives I have seen it work both ways.

Yessir, I suppose it sure does. Honestly, you would know that far more than me, as I don’t have to stand in a pulpit and preach. I do teach some, but I don’t think it’s the same by a long shot. I would venture that simply being in a Sunday school class might mean folks are there and prepared to learn. On the other hand, a lot of the folks who only come to preaching…well, they just might come thinking they already have it all nailed. Just some observations there. It’s a difficult thing for you pastors, I think.

I know a preacher who was told, by two members who gave a lot of time and money to the congregation, that his preaching was wrong. The first one told him not to mention sin so often and to tell them when they were doing things right. The second one told him not to mention forgiveness so often and to tell them more about how to live as Christians. He decided not to change what he preached. J.

A good question those of who teach need to ask often
