Luke 6:40 "A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.
The goal is to be like Christ, without adjusting your learning process to His you end up like all that you let contaminate you.
Great stuff Rich,
You added "trained" into the mix which is different than both teach and study - or is it a combo?
Trained, will be as, shall be perfect, taught, perfect disciple, restored, are the renderings of the word in scripture most often translated trained. I thing it is the results of teach and study. What do we want to be when we grow up? Like Christ?
I want to be like Jesus. I don't want to be trained yet though. It is too great being taught and studying. Perhaps we are made faulty, so we have some striving to live for.
I'll let Him tell me I've been trained until then, the Holy Spirit, the Scriptures and fellow disciples are the path I chose to learn on.
Rich: Question is do u have the Spirit of Discernment to tell WHO Holy Spirit talks thru? Does it align w/WORD? Do u reject bcuz of "teachings?" Have u done as Acts 17:11? Do u come before Him w/"clean slate" mind? Have u prayed for guidance?

Why do you think Script says we should be "ON ONE ACCORD?" Bcuz that ONE SPIRIT (Father, Son, Holy Spirit & ALL other GLORIES=GOD=whose name is JESUS (Phil 2:10) "Christ is not divided" (I Cor 1:13)!
Azusa Street Revival was a demonic show of deception not verifiable with the Word, same act is going on today with holy laughter and other deceptions. Pray the Lord may free you of this type of spirit. God doesn't use mystics to explain His Word.
Rich: "Baptism of the Holy Spirit"=demonic?(Acts 2:2-4;13) Behaviors considered to be outrageous and unorthodox? U're ex of "religiously correct." U call HS "mystics?" BLASPHEMY!
Pray the Lord free you from unbelief of what's written in HIS WORD!
Rich: "Not verifiable w/Word?" Read Acts 2:2;13! Behaviors considered to be outrageous and unorthodox? "Religiously correct" r u? U call Holy Spirit "demonic/mystics?" BLASPHEMY! (Mk 3:29)
I pray the Lord free you fm "UNBELIEF" of HIS WORD!

I AGREE 100%! I can relate to Paul in Galatians 1:12;16 "I neither rec'd if of man, nor was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (v16) "Immediately, I conferred NOT w/flesh & blood."
Alone w/GOD I found that ONE SPIRIT!
