Speak With Conviction and Passion!

04 Jul

 Ambiguity wrapped in pseudo humility is  the new “preaching” virtue. Moral clarity,passionate certitude and propositional truth are christianly out of vogue. The doctrine of   “sacramental personality” has so permeated the church,  ministers intentionally avoid the  evidentiary nature of  speaking from the source of Holy Spirit power accompanied by deep conviction. [1 thess 1:5]

Teampyro nailed it back in ’09 and this video I saw over at Resurgence puts it in perspective  for today!


“The visible church is overrun with bad preachers and weak-willed people who are convinced that the very epitome of humility is never to state anything with too much conviction.”

“Everything nowadays is supposed to be carefully qualified with lots of ambiguous expressions and weasel-words like ‘perhaps,’ or ‘possibly,’ or ‘It seems to me . . . ’ or ‘maybe.’ Everything (including the gospel itself) gets prefaced with, ‘I could be wrong, but to the best of my knowledge this seems reasonable—although I know other people see it differently, so I don’t want to be dogmatic.’

    Great point at the 2:22 mark…

    “I emplore you, I entreat you, and I challenge you to speak with conviction.”

    Well said. Well said.

    In a world with which so many are walking the fence theologically and are timid to speak with Biblical conviction, possessing a conviction of beliefs is a breath of fresh air.

    J.C. Ryle would be smiling right now if he were alive. 😉
