Great Sermon! Hi Brother Boling!
I also saw that article about VBS on SermonAudio.
I'm a senior citizen, saved from my sins by the grace and power of Jesus Christ the Lord, and have been walking for Him for almost 34 years now. For a long time now, I've been concerned by the frivolity of presenting the gospel in churches. Think about this: How many young pastors preach with the same frivolity they new as children--once they're grown men? Many act more like comedians and entertainers than pastors! The eternal soul of human beings is a serious, serious matter, not to be taken lightly. One of the requirements Paul gives for elders is that they should be "grave". Surely, that doesn't mean there's no room for humor, but surely not where preaching Christ is concerned, Brother Boling. I fear that we have strayed w-a-y over into a way not Biblical at all. People aren't afraid of sin and hell because it doesn't seem a serious matter after all.
I'm glad that you addressed this and thank you for your wise comments on the article.
