If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself 1Tim6:3-5
Sound Doctrine: Yields Both: Right Faith and Right Practice. (Early Church Axiom)
The Teaching of Doctrine MUST Translate into GODLY Living or Something is WRONG! If People are drawing the Natural Conclusion that their Personal Behavior will not effect the outcome of their Salvation, you are Sitting under ERROR! Everything Jesus Taught focused on DOING, STRIVING, BUILDING, Digging Deep, Continuing Steadfast, Enduring.
NOTHING He Said Implied that a PROVISION has been made for you and Some Kind of Moral Transfer of Virtue has taken place when you believed. ONLY DEEDS Could Prove Faith. If the Tree Yielded no Fruit or Rotten Fruit, it was fit ONLY for the Fire. Notice the Urgency of Early Teaching:
Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.Col1:28-29
HOW Far Removed is this from the Modern Day Church? In Early Times the PURPOSE of the Commandment was CLEARLY Defined: “Sincerity, Purity and Love!’ 1Tim1:5
Converts were Told to Walk Worthy of the Lord, Keep Self Pure, OBEY the Word!
NOW it’s Every Excuse why you’re the Chief of Sinners and Romans Wretch. Sins are Forgiven in Advance and NOTHING you DO matters! Repentance is Null and Void. Wrong Doctrine Always Yields WRONG PRACTICE! (they will not endure sound doctrine! (2Tim4:1-5)
Real Repentance is Suppose to Yield a CLEARING of Wrong Doing, Zeal to Do Right, Diligence and Purity of Heart! 2Cor7:10-11. The Old man is Crucified Once and for all with Christ, Rom6:4-6
NOT to be Repeated! It’s DONE, ALL SIN has Stopped.
Under the False Message you Come as you are and REMAIN a Sinner, with the Old Man intact. It is God’s Job to Subdue the Old Nature by a Process, you have Nothing to do with it and no further Condemnation for continuing to sin. Grace has you Covered, Declared Righteous in Christ and Pre-Forgiven! The ENTIRE System is OPPOSITE of Bible, Up-Side-Down! ALL WRONG. But they HEAP to themselves Teachers, with their Itching Ears, Being turned away from the TRUTH to Fables!
Thus the Following Describes Your Churches:
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2Tim3:2-7
But Saints Described in Paul’s NT Letters are Rooted, Grounded, Established, Built up in Faith, Blameless, Pure Minded, Loving, Patiently Enduring all things, Meek, Humble and Obedient. In TOTAL Fulfillment of the Commandment Delivered to them! Followers of Christ BY EXAMPLE! Right Faith and Right Practice were the END RESULT of SOUND DOCTRINE Contended for earnestly by the Saints.
Sound Doctrine will Silence the Opposition, Titus1:9, and Cast Down the Lying Strongholds! 2Cor10:5
