Scholar of the Scriptures

"The church seem always to be swinging between extremes: 1) to use the sword and power, or 2) to accommodate the message to culture and deny Christ's divinity. This why theological education is important. We need to be good scholars of scripture and listen to the Holy Spirit interprent scripture through the ages. Whe Jesus sent out his disciples, we are reminded that He breathed on them the Holy Spirit! (John 20:22) Not new methods, but a new indwelling of the Holy Spirit is what is bringnig men and women to Christ worldwide."
