I found this very helpful in getting me to rethink message content - doctrine - and presenting it for the non-theologian who listens. Thanks !!!

Dr. Shaw's careful counsel encourages preachers to stay in the text, and as much is as possible, remaining fully aware of the moment within the Church and the world. Surely the Lord is pleased with such counsel.
As a Wesleyan theologian and conservative evangelical pastor who has had numerous issues with the mainstream denominations, I can honestly say that doctrine is at the heart of the issue of our proclamation of truth and "teaching everthing that [Christ] has taught." We are engaged in truth wars and it centers around doctrinal issues and how doctrine is defined and proclaimed to our churches. We cannot fail in our mission to remain faithful to Christ's teachings of Scripture while making it relevant to today's society. I am firmly convinced that we have the same sins we have always had... just we have new ways and technologies to commit them and new words to call (define) them by. We must not relabel the bottle of poison as something sweet and desirable! We must tell it plainly what the wages of sin are and what the prospects of a new life in Christ means to them personally. The Holy Spirit will prepare their hearts and open it for the message.
