The irrelevance of relevant preaching

David Mills in the July/August issue of Touchstone:

    Thanks for the link to a most thoughtful article. I'm reminded of the parable of the talents. The industrious servants invested the talents and got a return. The third was lazy and got nothing.

    Why sit in a pew and not put in the effort to learn the language necessary to learn spiritual truth?
