Why do some religions Eg...metotisi,katoliko,mamoga, efkasa..etc need a qualification in theology?Jesus Christ and all the prophets of the Bible did not require any qualification to preach the word of God unto the people.

You can preach without qualifications of course but if you dont have deeper knowledge of the word you risk misleading people even though your intentions are good. Some preachers are all there emotionally and spiritually but can only preach emotion, so knowledge is also really important, helps builds peoples foundation on their understanding of God

Not only preachers but people should also study the word, maybe not full time though

Mormon Bishops don't need a qualification,only the desire to take on the task and fulfill his role as a Bishop. Yes Jesus did not need qualifications to preach,nor did his Disciples or Prophets.

They all need t spirit, t Pharises knew t scriptures, because it was accessible to them, yet, they did not comprehend t meaning of t WORD, because they did not have spirit. T difference is, yo Bishop does not get paid for his services, l think it's volunteer, while, other ministers r a paid ministry, big difference.
