Adhering to the Word
“A strict adherence to the Word of God will keep the minister doctrinally well-balanced and constantly in touch with God. In this way he shall be able to keep his people in line with the truth and direct their feet into the paths of righteousness. They in turn will learn to ‘search the scriptures’ and develop a personal discernment which will enable them to see and avoid pitfalls themselves. It is in this way that the commission of the apostle is carried out: ‘The things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also’ (2 Timothy 2:2).”
Douglas M. White, The Excellence of Exposition (Neptune, NJ: Loizeaux Borthers, 1977), 58.
