what makes good preaching?

David from Horn+swoggled provided a comment to one of my posts. This is so good it should not remained buried in comments. He got this from Todd Wilken's show on KFUO in St. Louis.
  1. Count the number of times Christ is mentioned. He is often absent.
  2. Make note of whether Jesus is the object or subject of the verbs. Is He doing the action, or are we?
  3. If He is the subject of the verbs, note what verbs Jesus is doing. Is he saving and forgiving? Or is he encouraging and modeling behavior?
It's amazing how hard it is to find a sermon from a popular preacher who actually preaches the Gospel that Christ forgives sins.
