Single women were told they would only get to heaven through marrying and having a child. Married men could preach from the pulpit only if they were not wearing jewelry – not even a wedding ring. Lives were impacted in communist Romania by well-meaning Christian leaders who’d never received training in how to handle God’s word with accuracy. Entire doctrines had been built on single verses, taken out of context.
Entrust entered the scene, bringing training in how to rightly divide the word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15). We continue to equip men and women in ministry with skills like inductive Bible study and exegesis, because we believe the Bible is our authority, the whole Bible and all of its counsel. Pray we remain true to scripture and faithful to its counsel in all we do as we equip church leaders around the world.
