Credo of a Preacher

The goal of a sermon is as follows:
  1. The congregation is inspired to renewed efforts to a life of service for the fulfillment of God's will.
  2. The congregation should not leave the service, depress or negative towards the speaker or the content given.
  3. The congregation should leave the service grateful, uplifted, humbled, and privileged to belong to such a great group of people.
  4. The person giving the sermon should remember that judgment belong to God and not to humans.  Even the greatest of human beings have too many ancestral and personal faults to permit themselves to judge others unless they have a deep personal, loving relationship with the person they are talking to, and that is not a possible situation when speaking to a group of people.
  5.  If a single person, in the congregation, feels unloved and sad at the end of a service, the preacher failed to reach God’s goal for that sermon.
