Scripture Reading: I Timothy 1:3

Our text for today makes it quite clear why Timothy was left in Ephesus:
"That thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine."
There was in Ephesus, as there will be in any Christ-honoring church,
efforts to promote false doctrine; to entice believers away from the
truth. With such there is to be no tolerance, but rather bold, outright
confrontation. Timothy was not to reason with the false teachers, nor
was he to seek to establish a "dialogue." He was to charge them, that
is, he was to give an authoritative commandment that the promotion of
false doctrine must stop.

Many complain that such an approach to the ministry is narrow-minded,
and to that charge, faithful ministers of the Gospel must plead guilty.
There is only "one faith" (Ephesians 4:5). If it is narrow-minded to
believe that God has spoken; if it is narrow-minded to believe that God
has given a distinctive message for the Dispensation of Grace; if it is
narrow-minded to emphasize that we are expected to know what that
message is; then let us all be narrow-minded.

The reason many are unsettled regarding doctrine, is that they do not
understand where, in the Bible, doctrine is to be found. Efforts to
amalgamate the Kingdom to the Body and Law to Grace are futile. Out of
desperation, many determine that there are no absolutes--- anything goes.

When such an attitude is prevalent, the ministers of Satan thrive. Paul
warned the Corinthians of those who "corrupt"; the Galatians of those
who "bewitch"; and the Colossians of those who "spoil." Let us also heed
these warnings.
