CORRUPT ENVIRONMENT 1Timothy 1:6-11 Print this Bible Study
** From our opening study together in 1Timothy last week, what did Paul want Timothy to do in the midst of all the false teaching which was prevalent in Ephesus?
** What were the two forms or camps, from which error came in its attack upon the saints at Ephesus?
** Has spending time in the word of God better prepared you to stand for the truth, to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints?
** As our study of 1Timothy now continues, lets ask ourselves two questions. In what kind of environment does the glorious gospel of God thrive? Do we need to clean up the lives of men, before they can hear Gods saving truth? The apostle Paul is going to answer those questions as he instructs his son in the faith in the passage before us today. Sinful man cannot clean up his act, but must respond to the gospel of Christ while living in a Corrupt Environment. Lets turn our hearts toward the things of the Lord by reading through our passage for today.
