I just discovered that my pastor is using canned sermon outlines from Rick Warren's Pastor.com site. In another thread, I described these as "Redbook" sermons, 10 ways to this, or 5 ways to that. Fill in the blank pop psychology with some Bible verses tacked on to make it "biblical." The series we are in now is "Dealing with Depression." As a Sunday School teacher, I am well aware of the need to use resources. (Though I personally do not like using quarterlies.) And I certainly expect a pastor to be well read. But is it too much to expect a pastor to do 20 hours of study a week and come up his own sermon? How common do you think canned messages are? Does the pastor have an obligation to tell folks that he is using canned material?
