When Is It Okay To Teach?

I had an interesting question posed recently. When is the time that you begin to teach? When have you learned enough in Heavenly Father’s plan that you are able to teach? May I suggest it is when you desire to continue to truly learn. A principle in the gospel is that what you have will be added unto as you exercise what you have been given. In other words as you live by the light that you have. Part of that comes with the testifying of what you already know. It is part of the “gathering” and will allow the Holy Spirit to teach you greater things. Continually studying the standard works on a daily basis is absolutely necessary for continued spiritual health and growth. Those who have been to the temple will recognize that truth. Christ taught it repeatedly.

We are to love ourselves and know ourselves enough that we bring to pass a true repentance and through the atonement of Jesus Christ we are washed clean and caught up in God’s grace for the things that we do not understand as yet. None of us have all the answers but we can and must walk in the light that we have and testify of it, knowing that we look to God for all complete truths. The process of sharing and growing allows us to be perfected and continue into greater understanding of the core principles of the gospel which have meaning that goes to depths that we have not begun to understand as yet. (in my opinion)

If we did not teach until we had all the answers there would be no teaching at all upon the earth and that is contrary to life, growth, and existence. That means we might be wrong sometimes and that is okay. We need to be willing to forgive ourselves and others for that. Does this mean that we do not acknowledge it when we err or when others do? I do not believe so. Here again, is an example of Heavenly Father allowing us to grow our own spiritual muscles. I absolutely adore the gospel of Jesus Christ. I find therein life, eternal life, eternal truth, and eternal growth and joy. This is my testimony, in Jesus name, amen.

About Yvonne Debra Simmons aka Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter

Welcome: Please read at your own risk and be responsible for your own edification and enlightenment. Disclaimer: I no longer consider myself a traditional Christian. I do still follow the Jesus I have come to know and I follow the Holy Spirit, as I recognize Him. I believe that Jesus taught us that we are the Christ and the "I Am" he referred to encompassed all of us. Thus, I believe we have misunderstood many teachings of Jesus. I consider myself a seeker and a believer in humanity and that there is a purpose to being; and an answer as to why we have the suffering that we do. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the instructor we should seek and that means trusting your own heart and being responsible for the guidance we follow. That means learning to hear and heed the voice of warning, instruction, or confirmation. I continue to be a student and an observer. Watching for something that tells me my hypothesis is wrong, or that I need to tweak it in some way. Writing is my greatest instructor these days. When I begin a book I do not know where it will end up or how it will develop, but I do know that I will be a changed person when I finish, knowing myself better. That may just be the best we can hope for in life. I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven numerous times as I have uncovered secrets that I long to share. My body will age and fulfill the contract I made with Christ (meaning all of us) to bare witness of His divine curse of suffering, but my spirit and intellect will bare witness of His innocence and the beauty and expanse of The Father's Love for His Son. To me, this, for now, is the ultimate freedom. I wish no argument with anyone. May we each be true to our own conscience. God bless us every One, Namaste~
