1 Timothy 3:14-4:5 (1 Timothy 3:14-4:5)Jim Griffiths, 26th May 2019
Part of the 1 Timothy series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Paul's great concern is for people to come to a knowledge of the Lord Jesus. The church needs to pay attention to its conduct and it's confession. Paul states that Christianity is Christ. False teaching will undermine this. Jesus plus anything is nothing.

1 Timothy 3:14–4:5 (Listen)
14 I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that, 15 if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. 16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:
He was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory.
4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, 3 who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.
