Popular Preachers.
« on: November 23, 2012, 02:11:22 PM »
As i said in  my Newbie thread I am very new to Orthodoxy and Christianity in general, but whilst out in the wilderness i did do a bit of wondering around, some of which was through watching sermons and debates etc.

I wanted to gauge the opinion of some of the better known preachers/pastors on the net such as,

Paul Washer,
John Piper,
John MacArthur,
Mark Driscoll.

Just to name a few. This thread isn't designed to flame anyone it is purely to see what the opinions are on said people and what they preach. I myself have enjoyed watching debates with Lane Craig, John Lennox and N.T wright, so I've taken in quite a mixed bag of view points and information.

Over to you fine people.

Quote from: Orthonorm
if Christ does and says x. And someone else does and says not x and you are ever in doubt, follow Christ.

Πλούσιοι επτώχευσαν και επείνασαν
Οιδε εκζητούντες τον Κύριον
Ουκ ελαττωθήσονται παντός αγαθού

Upon reading your reply i nearly spilled my Coffee as i recalled Mr Driscoll causing me to jump off my seat one night as i had my headphones on when he shouted,

I've personally never been able to Stomach Piper as i sometimes get the impression he's talking to himself rather than preaching.

Sadly i've seen many a '' T-shirt and Jeans '' preacher fall in love with their own voice.
