  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Borrow all you want. These are for the glory of God, and if you can use them that way, give Him the glory. I have tried as much as possible to give credit where credit is due, but I’m not perfect, so if you see something someone else has used, well, I saw no need to re-invent the wheel, and I just failed to acknowledge the source. It was not intentional. Email me, and I’ll gladly make the changes.
