TO TEACH? OR TO CORRECT?


**PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THERE ARE DEFINITIONS, PLEASE READ THE BIBLE IN CONTEXT. SEEK THE WORD OF GOD, THE TRUE MEANING COMES FROM THE BIBLE**


YOU CAN’T TEACH SOMEONE SOMETHING THEY ALREADY KNOW

BUT YOU CAN CORRECT THEM.

*Throughout THE BIBLE it says, those who has ears let them hear. Those who has eyes let them see.

Obviously GOD is talking to the ones who have THE WORD OF GOD.

In The Bible, it is clear that GOD is correcting HIS people.

HE wants HIS people to get the correction so we can bring the gentiles in.

8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master (Teacher), even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

✞Matthew 23:8          ✞Matthew 23

✞Jeremiah 7:23          ✞Jeremiah 7


13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

1 Corinthians 2:13          ✞1 Corinthians 2


27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

✞1 John 2:27          ✞1 John 2


12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

CORRECTION

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

✞2 Timothy 3:16          ✞2 Timothy 3


11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:

✞Proverbs 3:11          ✞Proverbs 3


10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.

✞Proverbs 15:10          ✞Proverbs 15


15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE GOSPEL

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

✞Romans 1:16          ✞Romans 1

JEWS are the ones that have THE WORD OF GOD that need the correction.

GREEKS/GENTILES are the ones without THE WORD OF GOD and need to hear THE GOSPEL.


6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

✞1 Timothy 1:6-8          ✞1 Timothy 1


7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

✞1 Timothy 2:7          ✞1 Timothy 2


11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

Ephesians 4:11          ✞Ephesians 4


With our walk with GOD we will have one or a few of these titles at one point of time or another. It’s not a title you earn going to college. JESUS by GOD chose Apostles and taught them HIMSELF it was by no other man that they learned about THE WORD OF GOD. According to the scripture people viewed the Apostles as unlearned men.

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

✞Acts 4:13          ✞Acts 4
