    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Our Dear Gremory, Your charge recently awakened to the enemy and discovered so-called “new life,“ which we know to be a grotesque death. No doubt your patient already thinks of many old things as worn and unpalatable, and has discovered new, ribald activities like singing and praying to the enemy with others. The enemy poisons his mind with talk of unity. No doubt the subject believes he is “one of them.“ But there lurks in him something old, awaiting opportunity to take control. Become familiar with this old man, and you may seduce your subject to abandon the … View Resource

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Dear Wormtongue, Before we get to the primary reason for our letter, we want to begin by commending you for the most excellent job you’ve done in your well orchestrated effort to convince your patient to keep his faith an entirely private matter, all the while thinking he’s doing a nobly sufficient job of showing forth his faith by displaying that old, faded Christian bumper sticker on his car.

  • Self-Centered Sermons Article by Sean Michael Lucas

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Our Son in the Unfaith, We see that you are making progress with your charge. We applaud you for that. The enemy has enough minions preaching His infernal Word faithfully; to see this one begin to totter and swerve from his task causes me great and unholy happiness. Might we suggest another avenue by which you might neutralize his effectiveness and so undo his ministry? Begin to work ever so subtly that he would become the focus of the sermon instead of God’s wretched Son. That sounds like a difficult task, we know. Believe us, our general-in-unbelief struggled to get … View Resource
