I left this as a comment on a previous post, and thought I should share it here:
I think that the announcement/proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ to unbelievers is of utmost importance. I think this is the type of proclamation (i.e. â€œpreachingâ€) that we see in the New Testament. I also think that this NT form of proclamation has little (if any) resemblance (in form, content, or context) to what is normally called â€œpreachingâ€ or â€œsermonsâ€ today.
