The Temptation of not Preaching the Scriptures

"The constant temptation of the preacher is to cry out some other message than the Scriptures—a political system, a theory of economics, new religious philosophy. No matter that this may be done in authoritative tomes, if a preacher does not preach the Scriptures, he abandons his authority. He no longer confronts men and women with the Word of God but simply speaks another word from a man."

Haddon W. Robinson, Making a Difference, ed. Scott W. Gibson (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1999), 63.
