His is not a creed, a mere doctrine, but it is He Himself we have. Dwight L. Moody I reject any religious doctrine that does not appeal to reason and is in conflict with morality. Mahatma Gandhi There are some kinds of Christianity that insist you have to believe literally in doctrine. The Gnostic gospels open out the complexity and multiplicity of approaches to this. If you think the story of the virgin birth is mistranslated, for instance, it doesn't mean you have to throw out the whole thing. Elaine Pagels I always try to put a seed of hope into people's hearts. I'm not there to teach them doctrine necessarily, but to let them know that God is a good God, and has a plan for their lives. Hopefully, that will restore their faith, or draw them into faith. Joel Osteen Evangelical churches are weaker than we realize because we don't teach the confessions and doctrine. J. I. Packer BlueLetterBible.org Interlinear Bible at John 7:16-17 Interlinear Bible at The Apostle John - Doctrine Jesus answered them and said, My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. (John 7:16-17 NKJV) The high priest then asked Jesus about His disciples and His doctrine. (John 18:19 NKJV) Mini Bible College 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 Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; (2 John 1:9-10 NKJV) But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.... Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. (Revelation 2:14-15, 24 NKJV) The Apostle Paul - Doctrine 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 6:17 NKJV) Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 NKJV) that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, (Ephesians 4:14 NKJV) As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine,... for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, (1 Timothy 1:3, 10 NKJV), 7, 10 NKJV) The Apostle Paul - Doctrine (cont.) 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.... Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.... 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 4:6, 13, 16 NKJV) Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17 NKJV) Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and [ His] doctrine may not be blasphemed.... 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, (1 Timothy 6:1, 3 NKJV) Titus 2:1, 7, 10 NKJV) The Apostle Paul - Doctrine (cont.) But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,... All Scripture is] given by inspiration of God, and [ is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, (2 Timothy 3:10, 16 NKJV) 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 themselves teachers; (2 Timothy 4:3 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 1:9 NKJV) But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine:... in all things showing yourself [ to be] a pattern of good works; in doctrine [ showing] integrity, reverence, incorruptibility,... not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. (Titus 2:1, 7, 10 NKJV) Verses about Teaching Doctrine noun doc-trine \ däk-trən \ : What the church believes and teaches (Yaroslav Pelikan) Jaroslav Pelikan has written a history of the Christian tradition on a scale no one else has attempted in the twentieth century. Jaroslav Pelikan Now I, Paul, appeal to you personally by the meekness and gentleness of Christ (I who am meek when present among you, but am full of courage toward you when away! )... I do not want to seem as though I am trying to terrify you with my letters, because some say, His letters are weighty and forceful, but his physical presence is weak and his speech is of no account. Let such a person consider this: What we say by letters when we are absent, we also are in actions when we are present.... But the one who boasts must boast in the Lord. For it is not the person who commends himself who is approved, but the person the Lord commends. (2 Corinthians 10:1, 9-11, NET) While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus.... Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them. He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord. (Acts 19:1, 9-10, NIV84) A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power. (Acts 19: 19-20, NIV84) And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that man-made gods are no gods at all. (Acts 19:26, NIV84) The Preaching of St. Paul at Ephesus Eustache Le Sueur, 1649 Discussion
