I once heard Mark Driscoll say (can’t remember the message or context in which he said it),
Sermons are being preached all the time.
He went on to give a popular clothing slogan as an example… and showed how it connected directly to Genesis 3, and was actually the very sermon that the serpent preached to Eve.
That got me thinking about how right he is…
So… I’m starting a new blog category – “Secular Sermons” – and in each post give a quick example of a secular sermon, a brief outline of the sermon’s message – and why it’s “secular” instead of “Christian.” My hope is that in the spirit of Romans 12:1-2 (quoted below) we’ll all learn to examine our culture a bit more carefully, and see how we can obey Jesus’ command through the Apostle Paul that we diligently renew our minds.
Hope you enjoy these… I know I will!
Rom 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
