Ronnie's Sermon Snippets
Sermons are often times for congregation sombulatory behaviour (sleeping). Often they never reach down to everyday relevance and experiences but tell the converted what they should do. Gone are the days where threats of hell and damnation echo out and the importance of giving guaranteeing a place in purgatory. Often the sermon is based on a few verses taken from a chapter in the Bible and the minister tries to explain what this means and moreover what it meant at the time. Sermons even go so far as to say that this is what God and Jesus ask you to do, quite out of context from any biblical text as if the minister has been told this is so. Sermons also can be linked to trying to put down any criticism that people have about the minister or changes within the church. They often can be used in an indirect way to reinforce donations for a building or a cause. Good sermons weigh up values with examples of how the bible demonstrates relationships between people with people and with nature. It sets new goals and especially portrays life after death. A sermon, as with any good presentation needs enthusiasm and belief in what is being said, with a touch of magic and inventiveness and with examples from literature and other sources. Ronnie, I believe, had all these in his sermons but even then wanted to improve on these. These snippets from Ronnie's Sermons we encourage you to use to help get the Christian Message across.
