NASHVILLE, TN - A Christmas message by Friendship Church Lead Pastor Richard Singleton titled "Jesus Is The Greatest Gift Of All" has received widespread praise from Christian leaders across the globe and is being credited with single-handedly revolutionizing evangelical thought barely 24 hours after it was delivered.
In the paradigm-shifting sermon, which sources confirm was "relatable" and "not too stuffy or harsh," Singleton reportedly utilized a conversational tone and colorful anecdotes to explore the tradition of gift-giving on Christmas, before shocking everyone in attendance by arriving at his point that "the greatest gift of all time was the gift of Jesus Christ our Savior, sent by the Father, whose birth we celebrate this morning."
"This is brilliant, groundbreaking stuff. Nobody's ever done anything like this before," one evangelical leader noted, revealing also that he had already booked a flight to Nashville with hopes of meeting with Singleton and learning his methods.
"This unique perspective is a game-changer for evangelical intellectuals everywhere. Like Edwards' 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,' people will be talking about this sermon for centuries. This man of God is ahead of his time."
"Everyone is chomping at the bit to see what he has planned for Easter," he added.
