"The True Teacher"

"The true teacher implants no knowledge, but shows the pupil his own superabundance. Keeping his vision clear, he directs or leads his pupil to the essential. Having shown him the source of wisdom, he retires before gratitude or sentiment toward himself set in, leaving the pupil to use wisdom as he wishes. Is not this the Way of Heaven?" - Austin Osmond Spare

4. NO!

Yes a teacher must teach us how to think! But a true teacher also leads us to truth!

3. Partially correct

Jesus as the eternal God man not only led by example, but taught us the wisdom of heaven so we can know truth from error!
