    As far as Andrew Webb’s blog on what the problems are with modern preaching I take great issue with it. I am sorry but his blog seems a bit arrogant. The non-reformed preachers of which I am one, he busts us repeatedly about being shallow, not allowing scripture to interpret scripture, we lack “solid exegesis”, “success is measured by how happy the church is” … REALLY? Then the only real problem with reformed preachers is they make (his camp) their messages too deep to where the congregation has to work too hard listening to a lecture. I am sorry but that’s a slap those in the non-reformed camp and lump them all into a category of not being true to scripture or being able to preach exegetically through a book. He accuses us of preaching too little on sin and not much gospel content either. Excuse me while I go get sick. This is horrible …. and I’m guessing the only ‘kuddo’s’ he’s getting are from the reformed camp, because after all they have their theology all together.
