Gospel Preaching In Season, Out of Season” or by Human Reason?

By Dennis L. Scroggins

Many are the preachers. that do not take. a stand,

People ask for "human reason," not for God, nor for his plan,

And we wonder why the people cannot see the Lord's command.

From the halls of education came a message for the land,

Its text gave human answers, and its words appealed to man,

Christians did not see it as a lie from Satan's hand.

The preacher and the people searched for yet a better plan,

"That old Jerusalem gospel -- it's too narrow in its stand,"

For the people worshiped "Reason," they forgot the common man.

"Highly Recommended," with degrees and titles grand,

Those preachers no one questioned, though they built upon the sand,

No one saw the heart of it they looked upon the man.

We wonder why the people in their haste from day to day,

Cannot grasp the total meaning of the price that Jesus paid,

But it's hard to know the reason when your trust is in the clay.

Do we sin to make inquiry of the preachers of our day,

"Why do you preach man's wisdom as if living for the pay?

Are you truly `above question' for all you have to say?"

But Jesus in his glory, will reply to; their dismay,

"You trusted in the words of man and did not teach My Way,

And now you must depart from Me with those you led astray."

But Jesus in his glory, will reply to their dismay,

"You trusted in the words of man and did not teach My Way,

And now you must depart from Me with those you led astray."

Matthew 7:13-27; II Timothy 4:1-8; Galatians 1:10-12
