How To Know If Your Bible Teacher Is Truly Biblical?

There is a simple way to know if your Bible teacher is focused on teaching the Bible or not.  These simple rules are easy to use.

1.  Expository Preaching.

Does your Bible teacher preach the text?  Does your Bible teacher take their text and deal with it?

2.  Points Back To the Bible.

Does your Bible teacher point back to the Bible over and over again?  Do they build their points directly from the Bible?

3.  Focused on the Text Above Stories.

Does your Bible teacher stay focused on teaching the text of Scripture or do they tell more stories?  Stories are not bad but should never take away from the authority nor focus of the text.

4.  Your Learn the Text Above Stories.

Does your Bible teacher help you to understand the text of Scripture or do you just remember their stories?  Again, the text of Scripture should be our focus.

5.  Is Jesus exalted?

And finally, do you sense that Jesus is being exalted from the text?  Charles Spurgeon said that he always took his text and then makes a bee line to the cross.  The Lord Jesus is the One that all faithful Bible teachers should seek to exalt.  Do you remember the Lord Jesus above the teacher?  Does the teacher exalt Jesus or themselves in their teaching?

    I am blessed, he is one of the best teachers I have ever heard.
