How can we be safeguarded from misapplying the ministry to support a burden we may have?
[#19 Q6] Often, when I fellowship with older brothers & quote something from the ministry, they will ask me, “when was that spoken?” I really appreciate this because it shows they are taking into account the context in which brother Lee spoke that particular point. I also appreciate all the older brothers who are aware of the various contexts in which brother Lee ministered and are able to put his speaking at different times & in different places into an appropriate context. How can we be safeguarded from misapplying or quoting the ministry out of its context to support a burden we may have?
It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.
