Preachers are not Psychologists

“If the church’s teaching is deficient, then its fellowship, sacrament, and worship are likely to feel that deficiency. The primary mandate of the the church is not to teach miscellaneous opinions about psychology, politics, or sociology that are not derived from revelation. The church has received authorization to teach that which has been delivered to the church from God.”

from Thomas Oden, The Living God, 326
