A new feature at Mortification Of Spin is a shorter, high impact broadcast called "Bully Pulpit." It's our way of responding to calls for weekly rather than bi-weekly editions. Our goal is to hit one topic rather quickly but thoughtfully in a way that will be helpful for the listener. Given the title, it is not our goal to tread lightly. Today's Bully Pulpit is a response to some confusing and troubling remarks made about preaching by a few well known mega-church pastors.
Listen in as Carl Trueman and Todd Pruitt take to the Bully Pulpit. On this week’s Pulpit they discuss the means and goals of preaching. What role does evangelism play in preaching? How do Jesus and the Apostles teach men to preach? Today, many preachers give their congregations gobbledygook instead of solid, biblical meat each week. The Bible confronts us in our sinful state before God, and preachers need to bring that confrontation in through their sermons by turning their own pulpits into Bully Pulpits.
