1 Timothy 6:20-21 O Timothy

THERE IS A TRUST
1 Timothy 6:20 KJV
O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

  1. Paul knew that the ministry was going to get more difficultas time when on and that it would become increasingly important to focus on the faith once delivered.
    1. We are to avoid, which means to deflect, to turnor twistout
  2. profane and vain babblings and oppositions of science falsely so called.

THERE IS A TRUTH
1 Timothy 6:20 KJV
O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

  1. I have discovered that too much of what science professes to know is not knowledge at all but theory.

They begin all of their studies on the premise that the God of the Bible does not existand try to find answers to their questions that do not include that God.

They propose theories and study one another’s theories

2. If there is a scientific fact that the Bible apparently contradicts,

I would suggest that the problem is with their understanding of the Bible and not with the truths that exist either in science or the Bible.

THERE IS A TASK
1 Timothy 6:20-21
O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
Which some professing have erred concerning the faith….

  1. We, who are the children of the Living God, have been given a wonderful treasure in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. To do so would be to err concerning the faith.

The truth is so important that we must not allow ourselves to be turned from that which is committed to our trust.

We must keep and guard it at all costs.
