Agree or Disagree? Bolton on Preaching

This will be the beginning of a new series.  My aim is not to stir up controversy but to provoke thought.  In each segment of Agree or Disagree I will provide a quote.  You tell me if you agree or disagree and why. 

All the men of God and master-builders, who have ever set themselves to serve God in their ministry, and to save souls, have followed the same course; to wit, First, to wound by the Law, and then to heal by the Gospel.  We must be humbled in the sight of the Lord; before he lift us up.  (Richard Bolton; Quoted from Iain Murray, The Old Evangelicalism, p25)

Do you agree with Bolton that this is THE way of preaching the gospel?  Do you agree or disagree that we must be humbled before lifted up?

  1. i kind of agree and kind of disagree, i believe this way does work and that being humbled and humiliated before God is an absolute must, but i also believe that there is no one way to preach, as long as you flow with the holy spirit and follow God his holy presence will show up and people will be saved. its not about what the preacher does or says, its what God does through the preacher. in my opinion. if the anointing of God isnt there, then its just words.
