Today we see a situation where members clap for men of God during sermon. This indeed is a strange fire in God's santuary. The word of God is supposed to be delivered under the unction of the Holy spirit who puts this divine word into our mouth why then should a pastor be appalauded for statements that are not supposed to be His in the actual sense. These pastors has allowed this ungodly tradition to persist in their churches and this makes one wonder weather sermons are delivered for the pastor to be worshipped and praised of for God to use it to work in peoples lives. Since when did the word of God become entertainment? The bible told us "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double edged sword. it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joint and marrow, it judges the thoughts and the attitudes of the heart (hebrew4;12)". How then does this attract applause? Yet canality and self glorification wont allow some of this so called men of God to stop this ungodly attitude. All these are what satan is using to fight the gospel of our Lord Jesus i this last days. Let people stop worshipping the creature and worship the creator.
