1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

Bible Study Without Learning

I have attended several bible studies in the past. Joined different religious groups and organizations. Made my own bible study at home but still no understanding of the knowledge of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:7 always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.

The stories in the Bible are great, the literal meaning can easily be understood, but the spiritual meaning of it is very hard to understand.

Unless there is one who reads and interpret the prophecy, everything is meaningless and can be dangerous.

Revelation 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

2 Timothy 3:17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Isaiah 34:16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

Inherent to a preacher or a priest is the ability to answer because Christians must ask questions to know the reason.

Haggai 2:11 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Ask the priests what the law says:

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

Why do we have to test the spirits of the pastors, priest or preachers.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

For every preacher must have words and wisdom that no one can resist or contradict.

Luke 21:15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.

Preachers of today don't want to argue or start discussion for the reason that they want peace. Well, this is not true, because a preacher must compare, dispute and debate issues not in accordance with the scriptures.

Ecclesiastes 7:27 “ Here is what I have found,” says the Preacher, “ Adding one thing to the other to find out the reason,

Isaiah 58:1 "Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the house of Jacob their sins.

An Apostles of Christ must have this character.

Acts 15:2 This brought Paul and Barnabas into sharp dispute and debate with them. So Paul and Barnabas were appointed, along with some other believers, to go up to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders about this question.

Acts 9:28 So Saul stayed with them and moved about freely in Jerusalem, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord.

Acts 9:29 He talked and debated with the Grecian Jews, but they tried to kill him.

If you are therefore in a Bible group study or fellowship without learning, then obviously, your Preacher, Pastor or Priest is not a man of God who is ready to speak boldly, argue, dispute, debate and ever ready to wrestle.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
