I've heard people say, "I didn't like that preacher." There are numerous reasons why but I don't know if any of them are good reasons. I think what it really boils down to is that you didn't like what the preacher had to say. Maybe it made you angry because you felt he was talking directly to you. In most cases, he wasn't. The message was about doing things God's way and if you are not doing that then I could see where you might think it was directed at you. The preacher is only trying to help you and others get back on the right path.
I have to thank Pastor Randy Steele for helping me get back on the path. As he was preaching, he quoted "As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool repeats to his folly." (Proverbs 26:11) This struck me more than anything because it was true. Even when the right path was shown to me I continued to go the other way. Then Randy's sermon opened my eyes. It was up to me to stop the insanity and get back to the right path. But until that moment, I had considered to stop going to church. I felt the messages were criticizing me. I know they weren't but I also know that I didn't want to hear what was being said. Thank God that Gretchen, Randy and his wife Mandy didn't give up on me. They really did save me. My life is wonderful and as I said before, I am at peace. It is a very good place to be
