Religious Preaching

Any sermon, then, that aims to apply the biblical text to the congregation and does so without making it crystal clear that it is in Christ alone and through Christ alone that the application is realized, is not a Christian sermon.  It is at best an exercise in wishful and pietistic thinking.  It is at worst demonic in its Christ-denying legalism.

-- Graeme Goldsworthy, Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture, p.124
