Good preaching is overrated. There is a ton of advice out there on how to preach a good sermon. But what if you want to preach a bad sermon?
Well, don’t worry. If you want to be a bad preacher, if you want to slack off on one of the most important duties as a pastor, you have come to the right place.
Here are 7 guaranteed ideas how to preach a stinker:
1. Start with your ideas.
The best way to ensure your sermons are awful is to start with your own idea. Why consult God on this one? Put your Bible away. You have plenty uninspired ideas. Pick your favorite and just go with it. I’m sure you will be able to find some scripture you can spin to justify it.
2. Rip off someone else’s sermon.
Why reinvent the wheel? There are plenty of other pastors doing the hard work of sermon prep. Why not let them work for you?
