Thus, if we are the outcome and the expression of times and institutions surrounding us, we cannot hope for a ministry intelligently possessing self-knowledge or vitally correspondent with its environment, unless the qualifications for power are investigated relatively to contemporaneous institutions and prevailing conditions of thought. And it is in this spirit that we discuss the qualifications for the ministry as outlined in a selected portion of Scripture. For Scripture is the sole rule and norm in spiritual values; and Scripture's application is changeless and timeless.
