What’s your least favorite sermon topic?

Some of these are too true (some parts of God’s word are best not made into a 30-45 minute sermon) and some are… well.. unbiblical. It’s an interesting list and worth a read.

The ones that really got to me were the “tithing/stewardship” ones. As part of a very small church (40-50 regulars) giving is a tough thing for us. We scrape by each week — barely able to pay our pastor’s salary. The bulk of our giving comes from a few people and those of us involved give and then give again (money, time, donations of equiptment, etc.) and then get to hear people complain about tithing sermons and the like. I realize that a tithing sermon at a mega-church that has a multi-million dollar building is a different matter, but then your issue is with the church, not tithing in general. Maybe you should try attending a non-mega church that rents it’s building and whose pastor drives a used Nissan. We meet on Saturday nights at 7.

Anyways, that’s my 2 cents (of which I should tithe .2 cents)
