Preach for the Lord not man.
Refreshing discussion! It would have been nice for them to have used an illustration or two especially when Tullian was talking about preaching to his seminary professors and/or theologians of the past instead of the multifaceted congregation that sat before him. Was he merely saying to keep it simple or easy to understand or was there something more that he was inferring? I got the Packer quote of regarding preaching to sheep instead of giraffes. Perhaps I thought something more profound was being conveyed than what was being conveyed.
Great advice. To me humility is everything when it comes to combating the pride and idolatry. I loved what Tullian said about broken vessels. We just need to get out of the way and that can't be done by our will...it happens through the Holy Spirit. Thanks for this guys! Voddie, I have heard three messages you gave on relationships at least 5 or 6 years ago. Great messages. You have the ability to boil things down to the real issue. Thanks for your boldness and obedience.
This was a great discussion. Almost every word spoke to some area of my life, in the area of preaching and teaching. The criticism is always the most difficult to receive, especially if I spent many hours preparing to speak. I've learned that when I listen to someone who criticizes me in a harsh manner, and I am able to get past my feelings of hurt, there may be a nugget of truth that I can glean and learn from them to improve my speaking and sharing of truth. Yet, even understanding this, it is still not easy.

God gives grace to the humble and resist those who aren't, anyway. (Proverbs 3:34, James 4:6, 1st Peter 5:5.) Seemingly, pride works for awhile. but, pride is useless in the eyes of God and is proven over time. Humility allows God to lead the way, all the way- I believed the authors objective, spoke to anyone who shares the word of God in any domain, that they/we, are never the center of attention to impress others, but to always be mindful of Who we represent, while speaking for God.
