1 Timothy 1:3–7 (ESV)

Warning Against False Teachers

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. Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions.


It is interesting that I hear people today in this world saying “I don’t care about doctrine!”  Really?  Paul warns against this type of attitude.  Doctrine is a BIG issue.  With so many people “not caring” about doctrine, you can see why churches today are all over the charts on what they believe and confess.  I am proud of our doctrine and the fact that it is grounded in God’s Word.  Luther’s Small Catechism is a useful tool to teach and defend what we believe because it is filled with scripture references as proof texts.


I pray: O Lord, the world is quickly turning against your Word and doctrine.  Help us to hold fast to your Word, teachings, and doctrine.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
