How to Resist False Teaching

Yesterday, it was my pleasure to preach the concluding text of 1 Timothy in Aberdeen, MS. This is now the second book of the Bible I have preached through, and it is bittersweet to have finished 1 Timothy. 1 Timothy is a book rich with application for believers today, and a central theme of 1 Timothy is how to resist false teaching (which Shai Linne has recently written an awesome song about). Indeed, Paul not only begins this book with a warning about false teachers (1:3-11) but also concludes this book with a similar command (6:20-21). What Paul does in 1 Timothy 6:20-21 is give Timothy and us three ways to resist false teaching:

  1. Resist false teaching by guarding the deposit of the precious gospel (v. 20).
  2. Resist false teaching by avoiding what is falsely called knowledge (vv. 20-21).
  3. Resist false teaching by relying on God’s grace  (v. 21).

You can listen to my sermon on 1 Timothy 6:20-21 here. You can see all the sermons I’ve preached on 1 Timothy here. May God bless the proclamation of his word!
