Is Pulpit Plagiarism on the Rise?

Thou shalt not steal another pastor’s sermon?

Recent cases of high-profile pastors who have been accused of lifting others’ material are raising questions about whether pulpit plagiarism is on the rise — and whether it has become a more forgivable sin.

Seattle megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll was accused last year of plagiarism in material he wrote with Tyndale House Publishers and InterVarsity Press. “Mistakes were made that I am grieved by and apologize for,” Driscoll said in a statement. Most recently, popular Oklahoma City-based megachurch pastor Craig Groeschel has been accused of plagiarizing the work of writer and comedian Danny Murphy.

Groeschel is the pastor of Lifechurch.tv, a tech-savvy megachurch founded in 1996 that has quickly grown to one of the nation’s largest churches, with 80 weekly “worship experiences” across 19 campuses in five states. ...

The only time a preacher should use someone's material should be in the instance when they also give credit to that individual for it. If preachers can't come up with a sermon without using material from someone else, then they need to consider another "calling". Preaching is a gift. One has it or one doesn't.If a preacher lacks integrity, one has to wonder whether or not he even knows the Lord.

Preach the Word of God and not YOUR version and there will be no accusations. We don't need the sold opinions of man, we need Jesus and His word ONLY! God is being bought and sold and it needs to stop.

Stevenr from Missouri has it right.
Why also copyright on the Bible?
It all smacks of moneymongering.

It's sad... Think if it, we have preachers of the GOSPEL fighting over their claim on HIS WORD. There is (should be) no copyright on the Word of God. I would be honored if someone thought my presentation was clear enough to emulate.
I would suggest that anyone who has a fit over "pulpit plagiarism" is probably in it for filthy lucre, and not the harvest.

How our Lord must weep. Imagine if the Apostles were concerned with being acknowledged by other preachers and if they took others to task for using their thoughts that were given by God in the first place. Where is the focus on God's glory and reaching the lost?

The pulpit like the pew is just another place where reprobates can end up doing false religion.

Liberalism is a case in point. The women who enter the pulpits are Liberals - Not Christians - therefore all you will get from these pulpits is human babble.

Plagiarism is just another form of stealing which the false preachers will quite happily do without any credible moral restraints.

Matt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
