The Necessity of Biblical and Discerning Pastors
This audio includes a brief overview of Ephesians chapters 1-3 and an expositional study of Ephesians 4:11-16. It also serves as a clarion call to pastors and church leaders to "Prove [test] all things, hold fast that which is good" (1 Thes. 5:21).
Based on Ephesians 4:11-16, the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul makes it very clear that pastors are to equip the saints for the work of ministry. Many pastors and church leaders in our day, including countless church elders and youth leaders, are not only not teaching the whole counsel of God, but they are also allowing many aberrant and heretical teachings into the Body of Christ. This leaven of false teaching comes through in sharing speaking platforms with false teachers, the allowance of false teaching in church “book” studies, conferences, and compromised bookstores. This study will help church leaders take a closer look at their own lives as well as the doctrines they profess to believe.
