The Popular Kind of Preaching

2 Timothy 4:3
A young preacher began his work in Scotland with preaching about the sins of the present day, and those of the people who came to hear him. An old man in the audience came to him and said:
“Young man, if you expect to hold this people you must be careful about preaching on modern sins. You can preach about the sins of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the old Patriarchs, but don’t you preach about the sins of the present day because the people will not stand it.”
