Doctrinal Correctness

Text: Acts 20:27

Is It Important What We Believe?

  • NT teaches the importance of faith (Hebrews 11:6)
  • Faith comes from the word of God (Romans 10:17)
  • God revealed what He wants us to know (1 Corinthians 2:10-13)
  • God’s word is true (John 17:17) — we must believe it (all of it)

Should We Preach/Teach on Matters of Doctrine?

  • We can keep ourselves busy preaching/teaching on other themes — some preachers do
  • But we cannot rightfully ignore certain passages or subjects (1 Peter 4:11; Acts 20:27)

What If It Doesn’t Lead to Sin?

  • We must still preach the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27)
  • Are we sure it doesn’t lead to sin? … Any error can lead to sin
  • Is this just the “slippery slope” argument? … No — emphasizing the need to believe what the Bible says is not a slippery slope
