Medical References in Sermons 02

It is said that Beddome would often turn to the world of medicine for an apt illustration in his preaching.

Example 2

Despise not prophesyings 1 Thessalonians 5:20

Ministers have their peculiar gifts, one of improving the understanding, another of convicting the conscience and a third of moving the passions. One is a son of thunder and another of consolation one opens the wound and another applies the healing balm. One is learned, another eloquent, one is highly argumentative another gently persuasive but there is no faithful minister of the gospel from whom we may not reap some advantage, let his peculiar gifts be what they will. Those who hear with prejudice are never likely to hear with profit, let the preacher be who he may.
