How to Resist False Teaching

June 10, 2013 Leave a comment

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).

Waging the Good Warfare of Church Discipline

Last night I was privileged to preach a sermon on 1 Timothy 1:18-20 at Friendship Baptist Church in Aberdeen, MS. As some of you readers already know, I have been preaching through 1 Timothy—you can view my blog posts for my prior two 1 Timothy sermons here and here—and last night I came to 1 Timothy 1:18-20. Those are three short verses that are packed with meaning, for in those verses, Paul both commands and models church discipline.

As I have with my previous two 1 Timothy sermons, I post an outline below. If at anytime you’d like to listen to this sermon, you may do so by visiting my podcast at

On July 11, I preached a sermon from 1 Timothy 1:1-11 at Calvary Baptist Church in Fayette, AL. I am very grateful to Pastor Blake Thompson and the people at Calvary for giving me the opportunity to preach there again. In recent months, my pulpit notes have moved from blocks of text to a one-page outline. Below is an abridged outline similar to the one I used from the pulpit while preaching through 1 Timothy 1:1-11. You can listen to my sermon at
