"Able to Teach"

With all the excellent free resources now available (here, here, and here, just for starters), there is simply no excuse for church leaders (pastors especially, but also elders, deacons, teachers, etc.) not to pursue a theological education. And yet, biblical illiteracy and theological ignorance seem to have reached an epidemic level, even among pastors.

Jason K. Allen says this:
There is an alarming inverse correlation between the seriousness of the ministerial task and the casualness with which it is often approached. We would neither let an untrained mechanic rebuild our transmission, nor would we permit an unlearned pediatrician to diagnose our children. Yet, churches often place individuals with the lowest levels of preparation in the highest office—the pastorate.
