Is Your Preaching Exclusive?

Who or what does your preaching lead people to? Does it, or even MIGHT it, lead people to rely on themselves? To prove themselves? Does it, or even MIGHT it, lead people to trust in their belief? To trust in their own doctrine?

Does, or might it, or might even just allow the possibility of someone trusting in someone or something else other than Christ Jesus?

The Bible makes worship, glory and salvation out to be very exclusive things. If you claim to preach the Bible, does your preaching match this same exclusivity?

I don't preach, because I am not called to preach, but in my life, I rely on my own reading of the Bible over any other human being's reading of the Bible. Therefore, I rely on no doctrine from any preacher or church council. I have never met Christ in the flesh, therefore, I have to try to perceive him through the admittedly distorted writings of others, and trust the spirit to make it clear to me. What God has for me is for me.

Hi Siarlys,

Are you saying the Bible is "distorted"?
