The Holy Route
Unhealthy Doctrine Destroys
"Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words;
it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen."
2 Timothy 2:14
The Right Approach
"And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will."
2 Timothy 2:24-26
Identifying
the
Wrong Approach
"In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work."
2 Timothy 2:20-21
"Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it
will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread like gangrene."
2 Timothy 2:16-17
"healthy teaching"
(1 Timothy 1:10; 6:3;
2 Timothy 1:13; 4:3)
"Their teaching will spread like gangrene."
2 Timothy 2:17
"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness."
Matthew 6:22-23
"Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels."
2 Timothy 2:22-23
“passionate longing”
(1 Timothy 6:9; 2 Timothy 4:3)
“Timothy, when dealing with people that, by their faulty theology, are destroying their lives and messing everything up around them, make sure that
you
stay the course. Don’t have anything to do with being rash in your decisions, avoid losing your cool, don’t respond in anger, don’t go to their level, don’t fret like crazy over the situation…that’s kid stuff. Instead, you pursue a walk that is upright, one filled with integrity. Don’t put your hope in this situation working out—put your hope in God. Live by faith, not by sight. Faith in God will free you from the situation to love others and have peace in your dealings with others—you’ve seen others do this very same thing. Act accordingly.”
a paraphrase
1) Are you the spiritually distant one that
others are broken and concerned about?
2) In your concern for another’s spiritual
distance from God, are you remaining
spiritually separated to God in your own
personal life?
3) Have you lovingly approached the
spiritually distant one with gentleness?
4) Have you kept an appropriate distance
from the situation—ultimately leaving
the situation between the distant one
and God?
