With the advent of television ministry's being on 24 hours a day; and now numerous websites promoting the sharing of sermons or prepared sermons for those of us who are time challenged.
Where/How do we draw the line between recieving a fresh word from God and simple plagerism?
As a young boy growing up in the church around pastors, I once heard a preacher get accused of plagerism. To answer this the preacher said concerning the sermon he had just preached it was not plagerism because the unnamed preacher who used it before had not give it any life and what he did by revisiting the text the very next day was just that "giving it life".
Now dont get me wrong I know that there are numerous ways in which a text can be utilized to illustrate different scenarios or views; but is there a such thing as plagerism in the pulpit?
