1 Timothy: Doctrine Matters | Week 1 - Defending the Gospel

In the first part of Paul’s letter, he doesn’t talk about all the details of false teaching, but the implications of it for the Church. False teaching always undermines the true Gospel. Jesus + anything is not the Gospel. The Gosfeedpel is that Jesus’ sacrifice is sufficient.

Scripture References: 1 Timothy 1:1-11

From Series: "1 Timothy"

Paul begins and ends 1 Timothy with the idea of doctrine. 1 Tim 1:3-5 As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine, nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith. The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Look at the end: 1 Tim 6:20-21 O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith. Paul emphasizes true doctrine because whenever we wander from it, we distort the Gospel. Our 10-week journey through 1 Timothy will remind us of the centrality of the Gospel.
