Reflection. The preaching of Paul and the "current Cults". By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.

If we read Acts 20.7-12 observe that the Apostle Paul had a cult in the city of Troas (Troy) that started the dinner (possibly 19.00hs) and lasted until midnight, when the accident Eutychus ( Hch.20.9) interrupted Paul. After the miracle of Eutychus risen, they took all "The Lord's Supper" (which in those days was a full meal) and Paul resumed his exhibition until daybreak (Acts. 20.11).


In Acts 28.18-28 Bible tells how the Apostle preached to the Jews of Rome. In verse 23 Paul says, "from morning till evening he explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and the prophets."


Today services last about 2 ½ hours. (150 minutes) the mean of each preaches is 25 to 30 minutes usually covering no more than 3-5 verses and 2 matches [1], as can be seen, very "soft" compared with juicy judging from Paul preach his works that if they came to him as Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, Galatians, Philippians, Titus, Timothy and Philemon.


If we want the Church to regain the glory of the early days, we should start by trying to emulate those great old messages, as Paul, Peter, John and everyone else.

Week 70 is about to begin at any time. It's time to re-take those examples of pastors, teachers and preachers that God left us in Scripture.
