What is preaching?

Hear ye. Hear ye. A message from the King. From the royal scroll, with the imperial seal. On this day your king summons all who have hated him, demeaned him, conspired against him, to come and lay down the arms of your rebellion, and turn from your sedition and swear loyalty to your king, by which (because of the sacrifice of his own Son) he will grant to you full and free and everlasting pardon. And on a day, appointed by his secret counsel, he will come and live with you, and give you every blessing in his treasure. This is the word of the King!
