Preaching and Authorial Intention

Ben Simpson has a good post here about respecting authorial intention. Too often it seems that we are willing to sacrifice what a passage means contextually for what we might wish it to mean pastorally or communicatively. A great illustration, poem, song, video, etc. should not be allowed to trump the contextual meaning of a text. I am thankful that Ben knows that.
