Line by line certainly has its value. It could definitely be useful in some cases. But lots of churches use this as a crutch, and it makes a smokescreen for rejecting teaching of a broader scope.
It removes God from leading in the message. It is better than Joel Osteen type messages all the time, but I know from experience that you need to give God lead way to tell you what to preach on a given week.
I cant think of a place in the NT where thats the standard but it is in the bible:
Isa 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. Isa 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
as far as what people say... well people say lots of things.
Hos 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
