Preachers today go forth armed with degrees and credentials; men of old went forth anointed by the Holy Spirit.
Preachers are questioned by committees and hired to preach what the church believes; men of old came preaching “Thus saith the Lord”.
Preachers today give themselves to programs, visitation, and church business; men of old gave themselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word.
Preachers of today preach and men are persuaded to move their membership; men of old preached and, “they were pricked in their hearts and cried, Men and brethren, what shall we do?”
Preachers today pray while the organ plays softly; Elijah prayed and the fire of God fell.
Preachers today are afraid that they will offend someone; Paul was afraid that he wouldn’t. If there is no offence, the cross has not been preached.
