IS SCRIPTURAL DOCTRINE
IMPORTANT IN A BELIEVERS LIFE?
JOHN 7:16-17 NKJV
16 Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not
Mine, but His who sent Me.
17 "If anyone wants to do His will, he shall know
concerning the doctrine, whether it is from
God or whether I speak on My own authority.
JOHN 18:19 NKJV
The high priest then asked Jesus about
His disciples and His doctrine.
ACTS 2:42 NKJV

apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking od
bread, and in prayers.

saying, "Did we not strictly command you
not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled
Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man's blood

Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this new
doctrine is of which you speak?
ROMANS 6:17 NKJV
But God be thanked that though you were
slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that
form of doctrine to which you were delivered.
ROMANS 16:17-18 NKJV
17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause
divisions and offenses, contrary to the
doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus
Christ, but their own belly, and by
smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the
1 TIMOTHY 1:2-11 NKJV
2 To Timothy, my true son in the faith: Grace,
mercy, and peace from God our Father and Jesus
Christ our Lord.
3 As I urged you when I went into
Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some
that they teach no other doctrine,
4 nor give heed to fables and endless
genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly
edification which is in faith.
5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love
from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and
from sincere faith,
6 from which some, having strayed, have turned
aside to idle talk,
7 desiring to be teachers of the law,
understanding neither what they say nor the things which
8 But we know that the law is good if one uses
9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a
righteous person, but for the lawless and
insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and
profane, for murderers of
fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for
liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other
thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,
11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God
which was committed to my trust.
1 TIMOTHY 4:6 NKJV
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.
1 TIMOTHY 4:13-16 NKJV
13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to
exhortation, to doctrine.
14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was
given to you by prophecy with the laying on
of the hands of the presbytery. (specific to Timothy, see 1 Tim
15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to
them, that your progress may be evident to
16 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.
1 TIMOTHY 5:17 NKJV
Let the elders who rule will be counted
worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in
the word and doctrine.
1 TIMOTHY 6:1 NKJV

yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so
that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
1 TIMOTHY 6:3 NKJV
If anyone teaches otherwise and does not
consent to wholesome words, even the words of our
Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to
2 TIMOTHY 1:13 NKJV
Hold fast the pattern of sound words
which you have heard from me, in faith and love which
are in Christ Jesus.
2 TIMOTHY 3:10-17; 4:1-5 NKJV
10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner
of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering,
11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at
Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra--what
persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ
Jesus will suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and
worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14 But as for you, continue in the things which you
have learned and been assured of, knowing
from whom you have learned them,
15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy
Scriptures, which are able to make you
wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction, for instruction in righteousness,
17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly
equipped for every good work.
1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord
Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the
dead at His appearing and His kingdom:
2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of
season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all
longsuffering and teaching.
3 For the time will come when they will not
endure sound doctrine, but according to their own
desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for
4 and they will turn their ears away from the
truth, and be turned aside to fables.
5 But you be watchful in all things, endure
afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your
TITUS 1:9 NKJV
holding fast the faithful word as he has
been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine,
both to exhort and convict those who contradict.
TITUS 2:1 NKJV
But as for you, speak the things which
are proper for sound doctrine:
TITUS 2:7 NKJV
in all things showing yourself to be a
pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity,
TITUS 2:10 NKJV
not pilfering, but showing all good
fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior
in all things.
2 JOHN 9-10 NKJV
9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the
doctrine of Christ does not have God. He
who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the
10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this
doctrine, do not receive him into your house
nor greet him;
What to do?
