“Correctly Handled” – Handle with Care #1

“Correctly Handled” – Handle with Care #1

This evening, Alan McKnight starts a new series on correctly handling God’s word in the bible. In this introductory sermon Alan looks at Paul’s instruction to Timothy to be a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

Paul speaks of the false teachers who were using words negatively. They were twisting their meaning to be more culturally acceptable, to gain approval of their hearers. In so doing, they lied and led their hearers into sin.

Then, he urged Timothy to resist that. He is to tell the truth, however unpalatable. He is to warn the believers to turn away from the harmful false teaching. Thus, he will gain God’s approval.
