1 Timothy 1:3





3 As [kathos] I besought [parakaleo] thee [se] to abide still [prosmeno] at [en] Ephesus, [Ephesos] when I went [poreuomai] into [eis] Macedonia, [Makedonia] that [hina] thou mightest charge [paraggello] some [tis] that they teach [heterodidaskaleo] no [me] other doctrine, [heterodidaskaleo] KJV-Interlinear



3 As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus, in order that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, NASB



Paul had been in Ephesus with Timothy, and had moved on to another city. During his stay in Ephesus, certain men engaged in the practice of false teaching, and this is the subject with which Timothy is left to deal with.


A couple of men, mentioned in verse twenty of this chapter, were probably leaders or at least examples of this false teaching effort, but in any case, Timothy was to confront and end as best he could, the false teachings that were being spread.


Paul will elude to four broad categories of false teaching their error, motives, goals and effect, on people who listen to them.


But in any case, remember one important principle, Gods teaching is truth, and the false teachings of men are from no other source but Satan, who is the father of lies, Jn 8:44.Only lies come from Satan, and nothing else.


Truth may always be determined as it always stands out and holds up under scrutiny.


Lies have nothing to stand on, and therefore eventually collapse under their own argument.


And one of the most dangerous areas in history will occur in the end times when liars and deceivers will become thick as thieves, so to speak, Matt. 5:17, 24:11, 24.


The false prophets will use smooth words, smooth logic, smart arguments, even arguments that appeal to the emotions, but their facts are invented and never substantiated, and they are forced to use ambiguity since their reality does not exist.


False prophets are only successful when confronting people who lack doctrine in their souls. They stand up against a weaker opponent, as a bully confronts a little guy.Against truth, they cannot stand.


False prophets are not restricted to theology only.The biggest crowd of distributers of falsities comes from the secular side of society media, government, celebrities, social norms and standards, popular opinion, and so forth.


It is against this barrage that people who are spiritually deficient, will be vulnerable.And those who lack doctrine, will never know that they have been deceived, unless they put the argument to the test, which most do not.


Your only defense and protection against the falsities of life, is truth. But you cannot use truth unless you know it. And you cannot know it unless you study it every day of your life. Bible doctrine is the food for the soul, and food is to be eaten every day, lest you starve.


How often do you eat?
