  • Thinking that you could get revelation straight from the bible without the need of a preacher

Romans 10:14-17
World English Bible (WEB)

14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in him whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher? 15 And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of peace,
    who bring glad tidings of good things!”[a]

16 But they didn’t all listen to the glad news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?”[b] 17 So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.


  1. Romans 10:15 Isaiah 52:7
  2. Romans 10:16 Isaiah 53:1
