  • Preaching in the 1st person-moved from Intro

    My pastor when preaching from the pulpit continually puts himself in the first person when referring to God. It bothers me some. I know that his God given task is to deliver God's word and feed his sheep. But when he does that it as though he is stepping out of his bounds. I don't ever recall hearing a preacher do that before.
    Thanks for your input.

    Hi John.
    Welcome to the board.

    Wow. That must make some other people uneasy too.
    I think he may not realize he is doing it.

    I have an (unsaved) friend who sometimes gets mad about stuff.
    While he's expressing his anger at some person - who is no there - he uses the word "you" and looks at me as if I'm the person he is mad at.

    It's all very strange, but I know he does not mean ME.
    Anyone watching him speak, though, would assume he was mad at me.

    People are odd - aren't they?

    'Dunno what to tell you about your pastor.
