I've been trying to figure out why many churchy people can quote a well-known pastor but can't quote the Bible. Or the pathetic of church hopping between evangelical churches because the sermons at church A are "better" than good church B.
Maybe church whose liturgies are shaped by Jesus and the Lord's Supper (communion) tend to not form personality-cult preachers and men-followers where people attend church to hear from a man and not commune with the Jesus.
You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men? For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men?
What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe--as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. (from 1 Cor 3)
Followng Keller, Piper, Dever, Jakes, Long, etc. is EASY when the liturgy elevates preaching over the sacraments. So that, for example, announcing to a group of Jesus followers that people are gathering to take the Lord's Supper together and hear the word will spark the question, well "who's preaching" for those tending toward what Paul is warning against here.
I think may be why Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Methodist, Anglican Lutheran churches, and other liturgy-focused communions (generally not Baptist, non-demon, Presbyterian, Pentecostal) do not have "big name" preachers nor personality cult-followers in general (of course there are exceptions).
Hearing "Paul" or "Apollos" or "Keller" or "Driscoll" or "Piper" or "Jakes" or "your favorite preacher on Sunday" is not the point, what matters is that those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by following Jesus, having been Baptized and configured more deeply to Christ by formation, participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice at the Lord Supper.
So in these idolatrous-prone churches with the "good" preacher leaves the people go to another church "to be fed" by some other mortal. Maybe the Methodists, Anglicans, Orthodox, and Catholics are on to something by moving preachers and priest around local churches. Hmmm...
Guess, it's hard to get famous and have a mega-church if people are gathering to hear the word on the way participating, in community, in the Lord's sacrifice together.
