wit and without

Few men can match the intellect and discernment of Dr. Erwin Lutzer. If you have never heard him speak, you are missing out; mmm... let me tell you! His books are well worth the read. One time I bought a whole case for giving away, they're that good! Seven Reasons Why You Can Trust The Bible was the topic of one of his talks. Man, if you like to hear a gifted speaker, you must catch this man on the radio. I have had the privilege of seeing him live more than once, and he never disappoints.


Okay, that's the "wit." What's the "without?" ...I am. Dr. Lutzer colored his speech with a couple of jokes, and though I tried, I just couldn't generate the enthusiastic guffaws he invoked at the live event. It was almost funnier that I messed up so badly, and that I kept looking for opportunities to retell the jokes, even after bombing repeatedly.


Here's one: He said "I'm from Moody church in Chicago. Show of hands: how many of you nave never been to Moody church? Well you know, you don't have to go to that church to get to heaven... but why take the chance?"

Lutzer is one of great preachers. he speaks the Scriptures with authority and passion in humility.

I don't listen to him that much, but he is a God gifted preacher of the Word.
