Does this new emphasis on teaching in the Savior’s way imply that previous approaches to teaching were wrong or misguided?

Much good has been accomplished through previous efforts to improve gospel teaching. These efforts were inspired and right for their time. The current emphasis on teaching in the Savior’s way is meant to help us focus on the Master Teacher, seek a deeper understanding of His teachings and example, and emulate Him more completely. The Lord’s purpose for us as teachers—as in all aspects of our lives—is to continually improve and progress. As the Lord hastens His work, and as the adversary’s opposition to that work intensifies, the need for Christlike teaching and Christlike teachers has never been greater.
