Fighting for the Foundation

The Summary
I mentioned yesterday that out Thursday morning Bible study was summarizing 1st and 2nd Timothy.  There are several threads that run through both books.
What should we be doing in our communities?  Thoughts at DTTB.
  • Entrust – 1 Timothy 1:11, 18; 6:20; 2 Timothy 1:12, 14; 2:2
  • Sound Doctrine 1 Timothy 1:3; 4:1, 6:1, 3; 2 Timothy 1:13; 2:2, 15, 16, 18, 24, 25;3:5, 7 – 10, 14 – 17; 4:1 – 4
  • False Teaching – 1 Timothy 1:3 – 4, 6 – 7, 18 – 20; 4:1 – 7; 6:1 – 3; 2 Timothy 3:7 – 9; 4:3
  • Fight the Good Fight – 1 Timothy 1:18; 6:12; 2 Timothy 4:7
Looking at the two books as a whole I approached it as one of my lab reports in college…

The Problem
Presence and increasing frequency of false teaching.  As we move further from source events, people, and documents, it is easy to get the message blurred.

The Solution
  1. Trust in God – I Timothy 1:11
  2. Develop Solid Leadership – Not about numbers, it is about truth and men who can fight for it.
    1. Solid in the Word
    2. Able to Teach
    3. Moral Character
    4. Good Reputation
  3. Sound Foundation and Commitment to the Word
    1. Remember what you have received
    2. Guard it
    3. It is under continual attack
  4. Sound Doctrine
    1. Proclaim it at all times
    2. Defend it at all costs
    3. Stay with it even though it is not popular
The Question 
We then asked ourselves is how many churches and organizations are doing this.
