2 TIMOTHY 2:14-18

CONTEXT: The Apostle Paul warns Timothy on how to handle false teaching in the church.

KEY THOUGHT: Doctrine mattes because what we   shapes the way that we  . The way we handle God’s Word leads either to life or death.

How Do We Guard Against False Teaching?:

I. WE MUST KEEP WHAT IS   BEFORE US-(14)-“Keep reminding God’s people of these things.”

II. WE MUST SEEK GOD’S   OVER US-(15)-“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved…”

III. WE MUST KEEP WHAT IS   AWAY FROM US-(16-18)-“Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.”

The Consequences of False Teaching:

(1) Increasing  -(16)-“become more and more ungodly”
(2)   of Others-(17)-“Their teaching will spread like gangrene.”
(3) Spiritual  -(18)-“they destroy the faith of some.”
