Oz, I do not know what to tell you. Though I have studied the nomenclature of the different aspects of Scripture, I do not adhere to them as a necessity in preaching, only for studying. The Spirit has not impressed me to use visual aids in preaching the Gospel, teaching is another matter. Anytime I'am called to preach and even teach through the Holy Spirit it is Jesus or our Lord said or did. Now I have used visual aids in teaching a class or sometimes in Sunday school for Children. I once was teaching a group of small children. I had the bible on tapes with the sound effects in an NIV. I turned out the lights and explained to the children that this is how it was before the beginning. I kept the lights off and played the tapes till it said, "Let there be light". Then I flipped the lights on, It wowed the kids and gave them some sense of the living word and power of God. But in preaching or Spiritual teaching, the Spirit has "never" impressed me to use visual aids. I do not know why The Spirit would tell you to use them and not me. The Spirit has called me right out of the pew to preach. It was the Spirit, and it was instant, not something I sat around and thought about. We must not confuse emotional reaction with Spiritual enlightening, one may feel sorry for what he or she has done after hearing the preacher or watching visual aids, but being sorry is not repentance..Only the word through the Spirit can condemn sin in sinful man. Do what you feel the Lord is having you to do. I know what He wants me to do.Doug,
Since when did the presentation of the Gospel and dealing with apologetic topics through use of videos not have spiritual drawing power? That's your idea. It is not mine.
