When is preaching from the bible not?

Overheard recently (can’t find the link):

I spent 13 years working in and going to churches where you didn’t have to bring your Bible. They put the 28 prooftexted verses up on the screens for us. (4 verses for each of the speaker’s 7 points, each containing a word found in his points, even if he had to use several different translations to find one.)
It was “awesome.”

Have you experienced something like this before? Uh huh.
