"In my speeches and the sermons that I gave, there were none of the arguments that belong to philosophy, only a demonstration of the power of the Spirit. And I did this so that your faith should not
depend on human philosophy but on the power of God." 
(2 Corinthians 2, 4-5)

"When we brought the Good News to you, it came to you not only
as words, but as power and as the Holy Spirit and as utter conviction."
(1 Thessalonians 1: 5)

Do you proclaim Jesus or just the facts about Him? Do you know how to bring people into the knowledge of Him and into the relationship with Him? Do you know why more and more people are disliking 'religion' but respecting 'mysteries of faith'? Do you realize that the apostles were preachers of the good news? Do you want to learn what are the components of preachings that is anointed, culturally relevant, spoken prophetically and with authority and moves hearts toward the living Christ? Do you know how faith is born in the human heart?

"Theologians, back to preaching! Don't spend all your time reading books and visiting libraries and academic institutions. Perhaps they have already given you all they have to give. There is another source of knowledge concerning the kingdom of God, another school: that of ministering to souls! They will teach you more than books and human masters are able to teach.
There's a need only you can satisfy! There's a need for people who are well prepared to synthesize and apply the gospel message to the world of today, to give our people doctrine at its best and not just a collection of second hand ideas. There's a need for leaders with a sound formation and good pedagogy to open for God's people the vaults of Christian tradition, where
immense treasures of experience, doctrine, saintliness and discernment are stored." - Fr. R. Cantalamessa
