False Teaching and the Pastoral Epistles
This four-week series will explore how 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus address false teaching and the cultivation of good doctrine within the church. These epistles provide a framework for evaluating theological disputes—their significance, when to avoid them, and how to discern the right way to respond. In a world infatuated with controversy, this series explores how to appropriately engage in disagreement without getting lost in meaningless disputes or sacrificing essentials over peripheral issues. These words written by Paul to his protégé Timothy and his “partner and co-worker” Titus are his last will and testament. These words are applicable to us today as we discern the spirits that surround us as we journey together to be a faithful congregation that resists the disruptive effects of defective teaching.
