Q.Why do some preachers preach only acts 238 every time they post on facebook. Shouldn’t we broaden our knowledge on the gospel and use the many other subjects topics and bible books to expound the gospel?
A.Yes I agree we should and we can and yes of course we should preach Acts 2:38 but there are many who give us the appearance that they have no knowledge outside of Acts 2:38, To be an effective minister we have to broaden our boundaries. The whole bible reveals the oneness of God and the whole bible reveals the fulness of Gods truth whether that’s in type or shadow substance or parable, prophecy or psalm Preach the gospel as is and share the bible in all its glory and story, the whole book contains the gospel, iAs we expand our “topical how” we. increase our ability to convince and persuade. So stick to acts 238 or the apostles doctrine and BUILD ON that foundation using the whole bible. For example I am doing a mini commentary of Romans and Ephesians based on the apostles doctrine revealing how Paul was really showing the importance of building on this wonderful truth and going further into the knowledge of Christ, ie with his doctrine fo the new creation and justification and redemption. The whole bible unlocks our foundational truth and we should not fear going deeper into wider paths yet sticking to the narrow way. This is how he he Paul was able to be persuasive and effective as a preacher awning many cultures and peoples. a lesson for us all. Blessings always

The whole bible is a revelation of the oneness of God and contains truth as our gospel message. Paul told us it was so for he says in his letter to the Romans, “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures, Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh (Romans 1;1-3). So as we go further into the scriptures we are still keeping the truth and still preaching Jesus while at the same time broadening our knowledge and increasing our capacity to influence
As we expand our “topical how” we increase our Capacity and ability to convince and persuade. So stick to acts 2;38 and the apostles doctrine and build on that foundation using the whole bible. For example I am doing a mini commentary of Romans and Ephesians which I discovered is a letter in which, Paul writes to show us as believers, how to move on by building on this apostolic foundation, this is how he was able to be persuasive and effective as a preacher to many cultures and peoples, a lesson for us all.
