Is Preaching Sophisticated?

One of the most noble things someone can do for another is to preach the word of God. Yet, when the world gets wealthy, worldly wise, and sophisticated, they look at preaching as backwards. Imagine that! Announcing the will of the Creator does not please the sophisticated palettes of the arrived. Amos knew that feeling. When he preached, Amaziah, a priest of Jeroboam king of Israel, said to Amos,
“Go, you seer!
Flee to the land of Judah.
There eat bread,
And there prophesy.
But never again prophesy at Bethel,
For it is the king’s sanctuary,
And it is the royal residence.”
(Amos 7:12-13)
Do not ever let such an attitude enter your heart and come out of your lips.
