What place does the imperative have in preaching? When is preaching considered moralism? This article considers the place of moral imperatives in preaching, and shows by way of examples that sometimes it is fine to take large blocks of teaching and focus on Christian morals without fear of falling prey to moralism.
This article looks at the prevelance of the teaching of moralism in the evangelical church. Using the example of the Avis Car Rental company's slogan "We try harder", the author discusses the dangers of preaching moralism. This teaching undermines the sufficiency of Christ, changing the biblical meanings of justification and sanctification.
