The responsibility of the learned

From Jay Bowman

It is axiomatic in the Bible that, other things being equal, the learned should teach the unlearned. See Ezra 7:10, 25; 1 Timothy 1:7; Hebrews 5:12 to 6:3; James 3:1, etc. Yet, it is not uncommon to find some unlearned but voluble brother up doing the teaching and preaching while an informed evangelist sits by in astonishment at what his ears present to his mind. The Bible says, “Let all things be done for edification” (Romans 14:19; 1 Corinthians 14:26b, NKJV).[1]
