TEACHING by the Spirit
Understanding the roles and functions of the
various participants in learning and teaching
3
OVERVIEW
To better understand the various roles and
functions of each participant in the learning
process, we must first identify who the
participants are. Then we will take an
individual look at the specific roles each
participant plays. Finally, we will use the
specific roles to identify a general function of
each participant. This will allow us to discuss
the implications of what we have discovered.

IMPLICATIONS
The traditional teacher is not really the
teacher! The spirit is the real teacher!
Therefore the preacher acts more as a guide,
leading students to a watering hole of new
thoughts and insights, and cannot be held
responsible for the Students willingness or
unwillingness to drink.

Elder David A. Bednar
I suspect we emphasize and know much more about
a teacher teaching by the Spirit than we do about
a learner learning by faith. Clearly, the
principles and processes of both teaching and
learning are spiritually essential. However, as
we look to the future and anticipate the ever
more confused and turbulent world in which we
will live, I believe it will be essential for all
of us to increase our capacity to seek learning
by faith. In our personal lives, in our families,
and in the Church, we can and will receive the
blessings of spiritual strength, direction, and
protection as we seek by faith to obtain and
apply spiritual knowledge. Nephi teaches us,
When a man speaketh by the power of the Holy
Ghost the power of the Holy Ghost carrieth the
message unto the hearts of the children of men
(2 Nephi 331). Please notice how the power of
the Spirit carries the message unto but not
necessarily into the heart. A teacher can
explain,
14
demonstrate, persuade, and testify, and do so
with great spiritual power and effectiveness.
Ultimately, however, the content of a message and
the witness of the Holy Ghost penetrate into the
heart only if a receiver allows them to
enter. Brothers and sisters, learning by faith
opens the pathway into the heart. (Address to CES
Religious Educators, February 3, 2006, Jordan
Institute of Religion)

AGAIN . . .
The student must, therefore, take
responsibility for his or her own learning. Once
a student has been guided to the watering hole of
new thoughts and insights, only that student can
choose whether or not he/she will drink. (i.e.
choose whether or not to seek learning by faith.)

Spencer W. Kimball
Because the speaker is local, or dry, is a poor
excuse for not attending meetings, though it is
often given. How very weak! If you sing and pray
. . . you could sit through the next hour in
worshipful contem- plation with profit even if
the speaker is poor. It is your responsibility to
make the meeting worthwhile by your individual
contribution . . . . One good but mistaken man
I know claimed he could get more out of a good
book on Sunday than he could get in attending
church services, saying that the sermons were
hardly up to his standards. But we do not go to
Sabbath meetings to be entertained or even solely
to be instructed. We go to worship the Lord. It
is an
17
individual responsibility, and regardless of what
is said from the pulpit, if one wishes to worship
the Lord in spirit and in truth, he may do so by
attending his meetings, partaking of the
sacrament, and contemplating the beauties of the
gospel. If the service is a failure to you, you
have failed. No one can worship for you you must
do your own waiting upon the Lord. (Teachings
of Spencer W. Kimball, pp. 514-15, emphasis added)
