Rejecting Bad Examples

1 Timothy 1:20

Main Point:  Do not pattern your life after speculation, but instead follow the example of grace.

  1. Rules are designed as correction for those breaking them [3-11]
    1. Revelation 2:4-5
  2. Examples can be found for others in our story with God [1-2; 12-17]
    1. Luke 23:34
    2. Isaiah 60:1-3
  3. Errors are malignant for those who embrace them [18-20]
    1. Ephesians 6:10-18
  4. Application Questions:
    1. How can we better embed the pattern of the Gospel in our lives?
    2. What false teachings are popular among Christians in contemporary society?
    3. How do we effectively combat doctrinal lies?
