I didn't want to lead another thread astray. So I decided to start a new thread with another question. For those who are pastors, would you accept the call of a church where you knew you would have to begin by preaching very elementary sermons, in essence 'dumbing them down' and then gradually raise the sermons to higher levels as you educated the congregation? How would you go about doing this? Perhaps it is often the case, I am not sure.
