Don Lemon was talking to Chris Cuomo recently on a CNN segment. He made some statements about what he thinks Christians believe about Jesus. I wanted to give comment to this because not only were his statements inaccurate biblically, but it's also not what Christians believe - like he claims. There are lessons for pastors in this because it shows how important it is to remind our people of our basic beliefs about Jesus that we might take for granted.
I received this email from one of my subscribers... "My sermon challenge is the inability to time my messages (sermon).

In this video, I offer 3 tips for dealing with time constraints ahead of time.
