"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it" - 2 Timothy 3:14 ESV
'Whom' here is plural.
"and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3:15-17 ESV
The Gospel of Grace is the wisdom for salvation. That truth opens the door of truth. The Bible is not just a book. It is a communication breathed out by God.
Many people have taught me many things. Men have reproved and corrected me. People have trained me. We need that. People are a doorway but it is the Bible that speaks. The Bible teaches and trains. The Bible reproves and God uses people.
An equipped person must have iron in them and then that iron can be sharpened by another person's iron. Alone anyone can get dull.
Do you have a teacher? Does that teacher empathize conforming outwardly or inward transformation? Is it grace or is it just goodness? Is it do, do and more do or has the work of salvation been done already?
Doing is replaced with a going that invites company.
'We are going to talk about what is done... come with us.'
That is the teacher I want to learn from. That is the man I purpose to be.
