  • These things I write to you, though I hope to
    come to you shortly but if I am delayed, I write
    so that you may know how you ought to conduct
    yourself in the house of God, which is the church
    of the living God, the pillar and ground of the
    truth. (314,15)

Keys to 1 Timothy
  • Key Word
  • Minister, ministration
  • Key Phrase
  • This is a faithful saying. (115)
  • Key Chapter
  • Chapter 4
  • Key verses
  • 315,16
  • But if I am delayed, I write so that you may
    know how you ought to conduct yourself in the
    house of God, which is the church of the living
    God, the pillar and ground of the truth. And
    without controversy great is the mystery of
    godliness God was manifested in the flesh,
    justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached
    among the Gentiles, believed on in the world,
    received up in glory.

9
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Teach no strange doctrine13
  • Warning against speculative doctrine14
  • As I urged you when I went into
    Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge
    some that they teach no other doctrine.
  • Nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies,
    which cause disputes rather than godly
    edification which is in faith.

10
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Love from a pure heart15
  • Danger of unknowledgeable teachers17
  • Now the purpose of the commandment is love from
    a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from
    sincere faith.
  • Desiring to be teachers of the law,
    understanding neither what they say nor the
    things which they affirm.

11
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Holding faith in good conscience118,19
  • This charge I commit to you, son Timothy,
    according to the prophecies previously made
    concerning you, that by them you may wage the
    good warfare, having faith and a good conscience,
    which some having rejected, concerning the faith
    have suffered shipwreck.

12
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Some will depart from the faith41
  • Warning to young widows511
  • Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter
    times some will depart from the faith, giving
    heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of
    demons.
  • But refuse the younger widows for when they
    have begun to grow wanton against Christ, they
    desire to marry.

13
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Failure to perform family duties58
  • But if anyone does not provide for his own, and
    especially for those of his household, he has
    denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

14
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Failure to teach wholesome words63-5
  • If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent
    to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord
    Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords
    with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but
    is obsessed with disputes and arguments over
    words, from which come envy, strife, reviling,
    evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of
    corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who
    suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From
    such withdraw yourself.

15
Contents and Character
  • Warning against failing faith
  • Danger of loving money
  • 610
  • For the love of money is a root of all kinds of
    evil, for which some have strayed from the faith
    in their greediness, and pierced themselves
    through with many sorrows.

16
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Congregational worship and prayer21,2
  • Therefore I exhort first of all that
    supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving
    of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all
    who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet
    and peaceable life in all godliness and
    reverence.

17
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Womans subjection to man211,12
  • Let a woman learn in silence with all
    submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach
    or to have authority over a man, but to be in
    silence.

18
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Qualifications of elders31,2
  • This is a faithful saying If a man desires the
    position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A
    bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one
    wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior,
    hospitable, able to teach...

19
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Qualifications of deacons38,9
  • Likewise deacons must be reverent, not
    double-tongued, not given to much wine, not
    greedy for money, holding the mystery of the
    faith with a pure conscience.

20
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Nourished in the words of faith46
  • If you instruct the brethren in these things,
    you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ,
    nourished in the words of faith and of the good
    doctrine which you have carefully followed.

21
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • The approach of false teaching42,3
  • Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own
    conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to
    marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which
    God created to be received with thanksgiving by
    those who believe and know the truth.

22
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Caring for widows indeed516
  • If any believing man or woman has widows, let
    them relieve them, and do not let the church be
    burdened, that it may relieve those who are
    really widows.

23
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Caring for the needs of elders worthy of double
    honor517,18
  • Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy
    of double honor, especially those who labor in
    the word and doctrine. For the Scripture says,
    You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out
    the grain, and, the laborer is worthy of his
    wages.

24
Contents and Character
  • Conduct in the Lords housethe church.
  • Instructions about receiving an accusation
    against an elder519,20
  • Do not receive an accusation against an elder
    except from two or three witnesses. Those who are
    sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the
    rest also may fear.

25
Contents and Character
  • Conduct of those who preach.
  • Exercise lives towards godliness412,13
  • Let no one despise your youth, but be an example
    to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in
    spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give
    attention to reading, to exhortation, to
    doctrine.

26
Contents and Character
  • Conduct of those who preach.
  • Meditate on Gods word415,16
  • Meditate on these things give yourself entirely
    to them, that your progress may be evident to
    all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine.
    Continue in them, for in doing this you will save
    both yourself and those who hear you.

27
Contents and Character
  • Conduct of those who preach.
  • Keep pure and do not lay hands on
    othershastily521,22
  • I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus
    Christ and the elect angels that you observe
    these things without prejudice, doing nothing
    with partiality. Do not lay hands on anyone
    hastily, nor share in other people's sins keep
    yourself pure.

28
Contents and Character
  • Conduct of those who preach.
  • Keep that which has been committed to them620
  • O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your
    trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings
    and contradictions of what is falsely called
    knowledgeby professing it some have strayed
    concerning the faith
