Superman: The Man of Steel

Can’t We Just Preach From God’s Word?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth, I made an admittedly provocative statement regarding pastors and preaching.It was regarding the growing groundswell of calls from Hollywood and leading pastors to utilize movie clips from the newly released Superman “Man of Steel” movie released last week as sermon material.
