The people of God have always need watchmen (Eze. 33:1-9). To warn the people (Isa. 58:1).
The watchmen is righteous if he warns and unrighteous if he does not warn.
The church of Christ has watchmen appointed by God (Eph. 4:11-16). Elders: shepherds, pastors, bishops, overseers—all the same office—are watchmen. Preachers: evangelists, ministers—all the same function—are watchmen. In general, all Christians are to act as watchmen in one way or another. They are here to keep the church strong in truth (Eph. 4:12-16).
This lesson will examine the duties of elders and preachers as watchmen.
