Application Ideas

Three Macro-Strategies for Writing Application2
Critique Religion as well as Irreligion
Religion (Moralist): Moralist tends to look at behavior.
Irreligious (Relative): Relativist tends to look at emotions.
Gospel: Gospel goes to the heart.
Aim at Heart Motives as well as External Behavior (Great to build talks on, but no entire sermon)
Behavior: This is what we must do.
Heart Problem: But, you can’t do it (♡).
(Faith in) Jesus Solves Heart Problem: Ah, but there’s one who did do it.
Back to Behavior: And here’s how through him you can do it too. (Can be application throughout or application of sermon @ conclusion.)
Look at the text through Three Application Perspectives:
The Doctrinalist Perspective (Normative / Prophet) - How does the text support sound doctrine? [Me / most evangelicals]
The Pietist Perspective (Existential / Priest) - How does the text relate to me psychologically & devotionally? [Cortney Piper] ~ tends to sound therapeutic.
The Culture-Transformationalist Perspective (Situational / King) - How does the text relate to corporate & cultural issues? [Kent Anderson] ~ tends to sound left-wing/Marxist liberationist ideology

What is the opposite that’s true in our world?
How does this critique the Irreligious/Relative?
