Today's reading: 1 Timothy 4:1-5

Warnings about false teaching run throughout 1 Timothy, and we see that again here in chapter 4. Paul tells Timothy that he needs to be aware of, and on the lookout for, religious people or groups whose teachings are inconsistent with that of Christ, and who place restrictions on certain actions and areas of life. Paul specifically points out problems concerning restrictions on eating and food (which addresses false religions but also reinforces a break from Jewish law regarding clean and unclean food), telling Timothy that if God created it, then we should receive it with thanksgiving (vs. 4-5).

How do you respond when you encounter spiritual teaching (through a book, radio or television message, church sermon or class, conversation with another person) that doesn't seem correct? Based on this passage, why is it important that we consistently spend time reading and reflecting on God's Word? Tami

I believe, reading the Bible and understanding what it says is key to understanding what is correct doctrine or not. So reading and reflecting on God's Word is very important, indeed!

Like Bereans, we go to the word to see if a teaching is consistent with what it says. Always circle back to the word of God!
