The goals of preaching
Meetings like this can have huge and lasting benefits. As Christian leaders interact with Adventists and come to understand us, misconceptions and prejudice disappear. They see us and appreciate us for our distinctive values, lifestyle, and beliefs; they welcome us as sincere, Bible-believing, and Bible-practicing brothers and sisters. A more recent development is the Global Christian Forum. It is not an organization; rather, it provides opportunities for Christians from many backgrounds and countries to meet for worship, fellowship, and discussion.
With the growing desire by leaders of other churches to know more about us, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has become involved in official conversations with a series of churches and organizations. These conversations are approved by the Administrative Committee of the General Conference and reported to the same body at the conclusion of each discussion. We select the finest scholars in our midst to represent our church. We aim to be open, honest, and forthright, stating the reasons for what we believe without compromise or equivocation. At the same time in our presentations and all interactions we endeavor to be gracious and winsome.
Some of these conversations have been completed with just one round of several days; others have extended over two or more years. Some have had far-reaching results, especially the meetings with representatives of the Lutheran World Federation. This conversation extended over four sessions from to and was of such value that all papers from both sides plus recommendations we had arrived at were published. The most recent conversation involved representatives from the Mennonite World Conference. Adventists hosted the first round, held at General Conference headquarters in The following year the Mennonites reciprocated; we met at a retreat center near Basel, Switzerland.
This conversation was perhaps the most rewarding of all those of the past 25 years. They strongly believe in separation of church and state and practice a simple lifestyle. Advocating peaceful means, they refrain from bearing arms. Because of their distinctive practices, the Mennonites suffered for their faith, even to martyrdom. Driven from place to place, many found refuge in the New World. The time together with the Mennonites was deeply spiritual. Excellent papers were prepared from both communions; they are to be gathered together and jointly published in book form.
In my judgment, all the conversations with other churches have been of significant benefit to Seventh-day Adventists.

Christian leaders have come to see us as we are, without the distortions and stereotypes that led us to be dubbed a sect or a cult. And we ourselves have become less exclusive, more open to work with and learn from other agencies that the Lord is using. Truth can stand investigation; truth is still the best answer. That is why we can—why we should—engage other churches as part of the fulfillment of our divinely ordained mission.
The author or rather editor, since it is mainly a collection of texts written by other authors is a lecturer for systematic theology and missiology at Friedensau Seventh-day Adventist University in Germany. The book is divided into three parts.
These texts are printed in chronological sequence and are briefly introduced by the author. Only through their deeds can God now be triggered into action. Ellen White gave several cautionary guidelines for sermon writing. One of these guidelines was to present a clear and proper exposition of the Biblical text. Although she never used the homiletical term dis-exposition , White does point out this error in several places.

Thus do many willfully pervert the Word of God. Others, who have an active imagination, seize upon the figures and symbols of Holy Writ, interpret them to suit their fancy, with little regard to the testimony of Scripture as its own interpreter, and then they present their vagaries as the teachings of the Bible. Richards the father of the founder of the Voice of Prophecy , H. Richards, Sr. First, ask God to give you your subject. When you have the subject chosen, then go to the Bible until you know for sure what the Bible really teaches on that point.
After that, turn to the writings and see what you can find on the same subject and read that.

It may cast light on it or guide you into other scriptures or make some point clearer. When you go to the people, however, preach to them out of the Bible. Her counsel, if followed, will ensure that the Bible will remain the sole source of authority in preaching. The preacher will go before the people as their fellow servant, God will remain in the pulpit, and legalism will not easily find a foothold.

It shows that the goals of preaching are to be biblical, Christ-centered, and a ministry to others. One unifying component present throughout this discussion is that the biblical text must remain foundational in the preparation and delivery of a sermon. After all, the heartbeat of the sermon is energized by its substance, essence, and content. For her, as shown earlier, the sermon begins and ends with the Bible text. We have also noted the domino effect of not following her guidelines: the Bible is muted as authority; the person of the preacher replaces that authority and voice; the preacher becomes alienated from the congregation; God is sidelined from the pulpit; and legalism begins to take a foothold.
The essence of homiletics in the teaching of Ellen White is that the preacher a has a personal relationship with Jesus, b is able to translate that relationship into a living testimony, and c studies the Bible and brings it to the listeners.
