Alistair Begg has just finished a lengthy exposition of 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 at "Bible by the Beach." The whole thing was a plea to avoid the cult of personality preaching, to follow unimpressive Paul and shun the wise and persuasive words of the shiny "communicators".
And at the end of the session I overheard one couple behind me...
- We need Bible by the Beach every month. It's great spiritual input.
- We get it every week. It's called church.
- Yes, but not every preacher is an Alistair Begg are they?
So that's a lesson well learnt then!
