Easily edified by a phone book

Agree or Disagree?

“The mature worshiper is easily edified.” When hearing lackluster (even if biblical) preaching, immatureworshipers will typically not listen to the message because they wish the messenger was more exciting. Conversely, mature worshipers eagerly receive the truth as it is proclaimed, even if it sounds like the preacher is reading a phone book.

Agree or disagree?

If I got up and read from Lamentations like Ben Stine for 50 minutes, is it right for me to think that you should be edified?

I certainly hope not.

(OK… hearing Ben Stine read Lamentations could actually be interesting).

And if you agree with the quote… why is all the burden on the worshipper?  I could be really into Jesus and worship, but if you’re reading from a phonebook, my mind is bound to wander.

How immature is THAT?

    Well, in your preaching, don’t worry about the mature worshippers anyway. They should be self-feeders anyway. Worry about the people who aren’t mature, who might be affected by style.
