The first century Christian Church faced a variety of threats from outside and within. Roman and Jewish persecution of believers and an influx of false teachers inside causing people to stray from the true faith were constant challenges the apostles wrote about to the early churches.
God’s Word also wrote of the final days when the church would again face similar challenges. Persecution and hatred from the world and an influx of false teachers and movements from within. And while these have been constants throughout the history of the church, could we be the generation that sees the great falling away and intense persecution the Bible warns us about just before the return of Jesus Christ?
This morning we are joined by Pastor Chris Quintana to look at 1 Timothy, a letter from Paul that warns us about false teachers and the biblical qualifications of those who wish to lead the church.
