Thoughtful Action: Discussion from Sunday's Sermon

  1. The purpose for teaching is to change behavior whether it be thoughts, words, or actions. 
    • How can we see that in 1 Timothy 6:2-3?  
    • How could you encourage a slave to act biblically without condoning slavery as an institution?
  2. Give examples from Titus 2 about how the teaching ministry of the church should impact various age groups.
  3. 1 Timothy 4:1 talks about “teachings of demons.”  
    • What are some teachings of demons being heralded today?
    • How do those particular teachings lead people to wrong practice?
  4. Do you find value in saying historic creeds? 
    • If not, why not?
    • If so, why?
    • How does 2 Timothy 2:2 help you answer that question?
  5. In what sense does 2 Timothy 4:2-3 make doctrine an “unfortunate necessity”?
  6. How does bad teaching about the law lead to bad practice in 1 Timothy 1:9-10?
