2 Timothy 3:16-4:2 "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. 4:1 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction."
To insure that this post is not just for preachers by a preacher, we must also realize that preachers are first hearers of the Spirit illuminating the inerrant text to them in the process of preparation. Moreover, the person in the pew or in the classroom or in the public square is considered a hearer and thus stands as the intended recipient of such effective preaching. Hearers are going to have different viewpoints on what the Bible is, however the preacher, if he is to be consistently effective and to stand up under the strain of a long-tenured pulpit ministry, must see the Bible for what it really is.
