From the Westminster Larger Catechism:
Q. 158. By whom is the Word of God to be preached?
A. The Word of God is to be preached only by such as are sufficiently gifted, and also duly approved and called to that office
I guess if we in the laity are asked “What we must I do to be saved?”, our answer should be “Go find an ordained preacher, one who is good at it, and ask him”.
Egad. Proof positive that Rome doesn’t have a monopoly on error.
(I am feeling a bit puckish today. Can you tell?)
