When a preacher spends more time telling jokes and stories than he does preaching, this is foolish preaching! Some “preachers” would do well to be comedians instead of preachers. I have heard some “preachers” who spent more time telling jokes and talking about current events than they did preaching a Scripture based sermon. Some seek popularity and will tickle the ears of the hearers with trivial talk, which will not save one soul! Only the gospel has the power to save and it must be preached for souls to be saved
(Rom. 1:16, 17. 1 Peter 4:11; Titus 2:6-8.)
When the gospel message is perverted! The apostle Paul wrote:
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed”. Paul marveled that the Galatians (as I do at this nation’s churches) had been persuaded to believe “another gospel: which is not another.”
Many preachers today pervert the pure and simple gospel of Christ by teaching such doctrines as, justification or salvation by faith only, the impossibility of apostasy, or claiming the Holy Ghost and baptism to be unnecessary, worse still is observing pagan holidays and supporting the government system of tyranny and lies … etc.
These doctrines are distortions of the truth and are foolish preaching!
(Gal. 1:8, 9)
