Another Havner quote: Comfortably Unclear Preachers

image In looking for a picture of Vance Havner to put on my previous post, I found this quote from VH that I like even better than the last one:

“We preachers have learned the art of how to almost say something.” Ouch! He was right. We have learned how not to point. We have learned to be comfortably unclear. What is needed is courage. When a matter of weight and significance is at hand, we need men to have a point, get to the point, make a point, and be clearly pointed about the point they are making. If pastors are not willing to do this, then one may rightly ask, “Then what’s the point anyway.”
