To Preach Is To Make War on the Human Heart

hansen“Preachers need more than just a commonsense hermeneutic when they read the Bible for sermon preparation.  They aren’t reading the Bible for themselves or to teach a Bible study.  A sermon is not thoughts about the Bible.  Preachers make war on the human heart.  Preaching hermeneutics prepare a pastor to decay sin, to look into the eyes in the pews and say with Nathan the prophet: “Thou art the Man!””
