The early church met regularly for prayer, the breaking of bread, fellowship and to hear the Apostles teaching the Scriptures. These new believers were excited to hear the truth of God and couldn’t get enough!
These days we are seeing an exodus away from discipleship, teaching doctrine, and a move more toward “relating” with people through life stories and experiential worship. And while there may be some value in these, if we allow our emotions to rule us, running unchecked against the truth of Biblical doctrine, we are headed toward very dangerous territory.
Author and Pastor Gary Gilley joins us today to discuss the importance of returning to Biblical doctrine in our churches and fellowship groups.
I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. 2 Timothy 4:1-5
1 John 2:15-17
