Skipping Isn't Equipping


Imagine someone who has just grasped the basic parts of an aircraft, yet has never flown one, demanding to pilot a fighter plane without undergoing essential training. Despite good intentions, this individual lacks the necessary skills, likely leading to failure and potentially endangering others.

Similarly, allowing individuals to skip levels in a ladderized training program, which is designed to build upon each step, fails to equip them properly.

In particular, leaders entrusted with teaching about salvation must possess a deep understanding of their faith's core principles, communicate them clearly, and model them in their lives.

The consequences of poor leadership due to improper training could be dire, leading followers to misunderstand the Gospel's significance and potentially affecting their eternal fate.
