Essential and the Incidental

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart outlines and gives examples of commands given in the New Testament (The Essintial) and differentiates them from surrounding details (The Incidental) using three different events described in the New Testament: The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), The Conversion of Saul (Acts 9:1-18; 22:1-16) and The Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-29, 2 Chorinthians 11:17-34;10:17 and Acts 20:7). Reference is made to what is known as the "CENI Hermeneutic" (Command, Example, Necessary Inference) as the source of those things Essential. Those things Incidental, which many denominations or even individual congregations might disagree about, are said to be governed by Expediency, Decency and Order (1 Corinthians 10:23; 14:40).
