Speaking on the issue of Pastoral giftedness Brian Borgman had this to say:
A natural and conferred ability to be received as a meseenger of God without torturing the discernment of the true people of God. On numerous occasions, in homiletics classes and church services, many have been tested by the well meaning, even zealous man (usually young), who ‘preaches’ his heart out. Everything from the organization, to the flow, to the grammar, to the actual speech patterns have tested the patience of the listeners. One of the indispensible elements of sanctified utterance is the ability to speak in such in such a way that the people of God are not tempted to lie when one asks them how he did.
