    Paul told Timothy to do the work of an evangelist. That was not his gift. He had the pastoral gifts of shepherding, teaching, and administration, but he still had to work outside his comfort zone. He may not have been called to be an evangelist or especially empowered for that type of more

    Contributed by James Vilgos on Nov 17, 2005

    B John Calvin in his commentary on I Timothy wrote: The reason why the Church is called the “pillar of truth” is, that she defends and spreads it by her agency.
