The Barnabas Files

“Guilting Christians into obedience is as effective as shaming children into eating their dinner. This way they will a) need you to force them at every single meal, b) start to hate the food that is good for them. It’s much better to wisely stir up their appetite so that they themselves will long for the food they need. So as preachers let’s focus on stirring up people’s appetites for the Word of God and their hunger for righteousness rather than guilting them into obedience.”
Adam Urban
(from personal correspondence with Adam, a Polish Pastor)
