Christians are butchered around the globe as US IFB preachers sit on their laurels telling themselves they're totally engaged in doing the Lord's work as they preach yet another recycled 45 minute sermon, once a week.
When Jesus said to take up your cross and follow Him, this didn't mean that expositional preaching is the only way for a pastor to accomplish His Great Commission.
