Question: Outside of ministerial positions where are Christians trained in theology and Biblical studies needed most?
Answer: I say, everywhere. I don’t think any Christian is made worse by knowing more about the Bible and more theology. It doesn’t mean that if you know a lot of Bible and a lot of theology that you are necessarily better in many ways than people who don’t know as much as you. I don’t think it ever harms a Christian to know as much about Christ and theology as much as they possibly can. I find it hard to imagine any Christian in any earthly calling not being better in that earthly calling.
