Application in Preaching

Reading: Kitchen Ancient Orient and Old Testament
Enjoying: grape juice, and the thought of a cozy bed
Listening: AFI

The subject of application in preaching has been much on my mind lately, including being the subject of a paper I produced in the first semester at seminary ("Preaching As Sacrament"). This video is 208 seconds of Piper explaining how he understands his preaching to function in God's grace and application.


What do you think? Is Piper consistent with his theology? With broader Reformed theology?

We here at What the Thunder Said hope to think through this issue more with you, but hope you'll get the conversation going in the comments! Let's hear it: how should application function in sermons with God's grace?

Dude, I'm not as concerned about what Piper said as much as I am concerned about the fact that you are listening to 'AFI'. They were popular... hmm... when I was in 8th grade:)
On a side note, you should check out Matthew Smith (a distant relative of Michael W. Smith, jk). You might like his sound.
grace and peace,

Thank you, that was just an awesome post!!!

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
