1 Timothy 1:3-7

“As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine, nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith.  The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.  Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions” – Not everyone is called to teach. Therefore, one should carefully examine their motives and use spiritual discernment before embracing the ministry; otherwise they risk going out in their own strength and giving God a bad name, speaking on things they do not know or understand!
