A warning to preachers?

According to a new study, asking people how often they are likely to engage in a negative behavior actually increases the likelihood they will engage in it.

Which got me wondering…if a preacher emphasizes the dangers of sin over the rewards of righteousness, so that he gets people constantly thinking about sin and temptation and how likely they are to give in, is his congregation actually more likely to commit the sins he’s constantly warning against than a congregation whose preacher takes a different tack?

Someone should do that study…
