    On another board where I post, there was a comical thread started on "ways not to begin a sermon". I thought it might be fun here as well. I will start with a couple of mine from the other board:

    "Today we will have a living illustration of what Solomon was writing about in his Songs."

    "This morning my second personality will be speaking."

    And for all the KJVO folks, "Our sermon this morning from the old KJV on Balaam's talking ass reminds me of our deacons." :eek:

    Any other suggestions???

    Or, "In lieu of my many recent indictments..."

    "Today's Scripture comes from Matthew 29..."

    "I need to inform our affiliates that our time will be running quite late today..."

    "The length of today's sermon will be in inverse proportion to the offering..."

    If he's Pentecostal: "Where's the rattler I put in this box?"

    Please open your bibles to 2 Peter, Chapter 2.

    But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears!
