8 Steps to Being An Ineffective Preacher...
1. Be Ungodly.
There's a reason Paul didn't write a homiletics manual when he wrote to Timothy and Titus. There's a reason Paul focused his attention on character qualities when he talked to Timothy and Titus about what to look for in church leaders. The character of the messenger is more important than the style of the message.
2. Depend on Yourself.
If you want to do something God hates, go into the pulpit trusting in your own ability. God says, "Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. He is like a shrub in the desert and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land."
