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.

According to clock time and calendar time the approval of threads may seem to be long delayed, but in sacred time it is always near at hand, always imminent.

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.
