‘The great defect of that sermon this afternoon was this…that you were overtaxing your people, you were giving them too much…you are only stunning them and not helping them.’
What I found especially helpful was Colin’s reply in the comment section about how Lloyd Jones responded/adjusted to the criticism? Colin says:
I think he developed into a preacher who would preach dogmatically on one theme – expositionally of course. I wonder if this was part of the reason he preached on such small sections. Perhaps he didn’t want to fall into the trap of lecturing on numerous ideas, rather than one overarching application.
Apparently his mentor then added something along the lines of: “Now watch what I will be doing tonight. I will really be saying one thing, but in three different ways.”
