Sermon Illustrations


What would you think if I said, "We’ve decided that sometimes, instead of having praise and worship music, we’re going to listen to Marilyn Manson? And sometimes instead of celebrating the Lord’s Supper with bread and juice, we’ll celebrate it with Jack Daniel’s. And why not every once in a while instead of having a sermon, we’ll watch an X-rated movie instead. You know, not all the time, just once in a while." If we did that, would you think Cornerstone was a church that was totally devoted to God?

If we wouldn’t tolerate such behavior on Sunday morning, why would we tolerate it on Saturday night? If doing those things would be considered an abomination to this temple (gesture to the church building), what would convince us that it’s no big deal to do that to this temple (gesture to self)?
