I don’t usually blog like this, but I’d like to share a passage that bothers me and ask your opinion. Colossians 1:25 says, “God has given me [Paul] the responsibility of serving his church by proclaiming his entire message to you.“
I’m bothered by how many preachers I’ve heard who tend to focus on one primary theme. Some preach mostly on faith, others on healing, or missions, or poverty, etc. I wonder: Is every preacher of the Word commissioned to proclaim God’s “entire message”? Or, are there some preachers who are commissioned to preach on a single theme? Furthermore, could it be that the accumulated messages of all God’s preachers meant to be an accurate representation of His message? The jury is still out in my mind, but I’d like to hear what others think.
