The Definition Of “Doctrine”

A Bible “doctrine” is an absolute truth or teaching found in holy scripture.

Gr. didaskalia – Teaching or instruction

Didache - Teaching or Instruction


Biblical Doctrine Versus Man’s Doctrine

Often human opinion of Bible doctrine is declared as Bible doctrine

I Cor. 13 of Paul that "when that which is perfect is come that which is in part shall be done away,"


“Each generation of Christians must look to its beliefs. While truth itself is unchanging, the minds of men are porous vessels out of which truth can leak and into which error may seep to dilute the truth they contain.” A. W. Tozer


A Garden Analogy

Mat 13:27 …'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?' 28 "And he said to them, 'An enemy has done this!'


Jer 6:16 So says Yahweh, Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it.


Modern Attitudes In The Church

  • Ecumenism - Unity Over Revelation

We need to emphasize love and unity, doctrine divides.


Subjectivism – Feeling Over Fact

I know what the Bible says but I prayed about it and I feel like God is directing me a different way.


Existentialism – Life over Revelation

Doctrine has little to do with every day life, it’s not that important to me.


Complexity – Laziness Over Diligence

Doctrine is too complicated for the average person to understand.


Orthopraxy – Doing right versus Believing Right

Doctrine isn’t that important if people will just love one another and do right


Biblical Emphasis of Doctrine

  • Bible Doctrine is God’s Teaching

2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed (inspired), and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

John 7:16: "Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine (Didache) is not mine, but His that sent me,"

Would we dare say to God His doctrine is not important?


Bible Doctrine Is To Stay Pure

I Tim. 1:3 - As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine (didaskalia), (Context Acts 20:28,29)


Doctrine Is To Be Guarded, And The False To Be Refuted

Tit 1:7 For the overseer must be … 9 holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching (Didache) , so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine (didaskalia) and to refute those who contradict. 10 For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, 11 who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching (Didasko) things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain.


Much of The NT Scripture Came About Because Of Doctrinal Disputes

Romans – Antinomianism/Judaizers

I Corinthians – Division/Use of gifts

II Corinthians – False Apostles

Galatians/Philippians - Judaizers

Colossians/ IJn. - Gnosticism

I & II Thessalonians - Eschatology


The Cycle of Apostasy

Revelation & Obedience To Truth

Rom 1:21 Because, knowing God…


they did not glorify Him as God…


But they became vain in their imaginations…


Rom 1:25 For they changed the truth of God into a lie


2Th 2:3 Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition,

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, 12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.


Good Doctrine Is To Be Prioritized

1Ti 4:13 - Until I come, give attention to the reading of Scripture, to exhortation and *teaching (Didaskalia).

1Ti 4:16 Hold on to yourself and to the *doctrine ; continue in them, for doing this you shall both save yourself and those who hear you.

2Ti 4:2 - preach the Word, be instant in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and *doctrine. 3 For a time will be when they will not endure sound *doctrine …


Bad doctrine Is To Be Despised and Silenced In The Church

1Ti 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, (Source of teaching)

Tit. 10 For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, 11 who must be silenced…

Rev. 2:15 "I hate the doctrine of the Nicolaitans.”


1Ti 1:19 keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith.
