Notes & Transcripts

Preachers have their own set of temptations!  That fact can be illustrated by an event in the life of John Bunyan.  Bunyan had preached an unusually anointed sermon.  Immediately after the service, a layman jumped from his pew and raced to shake Bunyan’s hand exclaiming, “Bunyan, that was the most powerful sermon I have ever heard!”  

Bunyan replied with brutal honesty, “Man, you need not tell me that. The devil whispered it to me before I was well out of the pulpit.”
