Comment to those looking at my sermons: TO THOSE LOOKING AT MY SERMONS: THE MAJORITY OF MY SERMONS ARE DIRECTED TOWARD THE BELIEVER ALTHOUGH THERE ARE A FEW THAT ARE DIRECTED TOWARD SEEKERS AND THE LOST. THE BELIEVERS MAINLY BECAUSE SOME OF OUR BELIEVERS ARE DARK AMONGST DARK, THEREFORE, THE SEEKER AND THE LOST REMAIN LOST BECAUSE THEY SEE THOSE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN CHRIST IN THE JUDGEMENT SEAT WITH THEM,THEREFORE,THERE IS NO REASON TO FIND CHRIST.
Sermon or series that made a difference: THE SERMON THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE WOULD BE EVERYONE’S NOT COMING HOME. IT MADE ME UNDERSTAND THAT THE FACT THAT I AM A MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL DOES NOT NECCESSARILY MEAN THAT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS GOING TO BE MY HOME IF I’M NOT WALKING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
One of my favorite illustrations: AND GOD SAID NO
Family: I AM BLESSED WITH MY WIFE AND FIVE KIDS WHO ALL ARE A JOY TO ME AND A GREAT REWARD TO HAVE IN MY LIFE.
What my parents think of my sermons: MY PARENTS ARE VERY WELL PLEASED WITH MY SERMONS, ALTHOUGH THEY BELIEVE THAT I’M A LITTLE RADICAL. RADICAL FOR CHRIST, THAT IS.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: SHE SEEMS TO ENJOY MY SERMONS, BECAUSE I’M REALLY ON CURRENT EVENTS THINGS THAT SHE CAN IDENTIFY WITH.
Best advice given to me about preaching: THE BEST GIVEN ADVICE ABOUT PREACHING THAT STAYS WITH ME IS TO MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUS AND ALWAYS KEEP THE SPIRITUAL NEEDS OF THE HOUSE (CHURCH)IN FRONT OF YOUR OWN NEEDS NAND GOD WILL RICHLY BLESS YOU FOR YOUR LABOR OF LOVE.
