Ephesians 4:11-12 “And He Himself gave some as apostles…prophets..evangelists,and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ…”
As opposed to James 3:1 whereby “not many should be teachers…” Paul informs us that God did commend some as teachers.
As I consider the various churches and their teaching ministries in my experience, I note a predominance of sermons that are all over the place. Not bad sermons per se, but scattered. If someone wanted clarification on a particular verse or doctrine, they may or may not be able to find sermon source material that would address and maybe resolve a particular question. Thus the body of Biblical materials is thin and divergent. Additionally, if someone wanted guidance on controversial doctrines, heaven help them, it is nowhere to be found.
Sadly, the end result is a multitude of untrained believers in our churches.
Conversely, some churches have a teaching ministry that is cohesive and comprehensive. If one had a question about a particular verse or about a difficult doctrine, chances are that the sermon notes would address it. Pastors such as John MacArthur and J. Vernon McGee come to mind. They preached through the bible and leave a body of work that acts effectively as a living commentary of the Bible.
It is all too common, unfortunately, that many churches do not teach, comprehensively, the fundamentals of the Christian faith. Neither from the pulpit nor even from any bible study series.
I feel obligated and privileged to develop a body of knowledge that not only includes the fundamentals of our Christian beliefs but adds an element of practical applications. As such, I present this index of Christian Fundamentals.
