    Ephesians 4: 11-14  "And He Himself gave some to be…teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry…that we should no longer be children tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men…"

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
