9. Love for The Lord Jesus Christ is based upon the believer guarding Bible doctrine in their life. JOH 14:23Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and my Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.”JOH 14:24 “He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.”
10. Bible doctrine communicated is what cleans up the believer's life. JOH 15:3 “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.”EPH 5:26so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
11. It is through the communication of Bible doctrine that disciples increase. ACT 6:7The Word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem. ACT 20:32 “And now I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”ROM 10:17so faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
12. Bible doctrine is the weapon that the believer uses in life. EPH 6:17 “and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God.”HEB 4:12for the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two‑edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
13. Only fools despise Bible doctrine. PRO 1:7The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.PRO 1:22 “How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded [simplicity]? And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing, and fools hate knowledge?PRO 10:14Wise men store up knowledge, but with the mouth of the foolish, ruin is at hand.PRO 15:14The mind of the intelligent seeks knowledge, but the mouth of fools feeds on folly.
14. Bible doctrine is that which is pleasant to the soul. PRO 2:10For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; PRO 24:4And by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.PRO 24:5A wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge increases power.ECC 7:12For wisdom is protection just as money is protection, but the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the lives of its possessors. PRO 19:8He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who keeps understanding will find good.
15. Rejection of Bible doctrine produces destruction. ISA 5:13 “Therefore My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge;”HOS 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”
16. God desires doctrine in the soul, not human works. HOS 6:6 “For I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice, and in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.” ROM 10:2 “For I testify about [bear them witness] them that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge.”
17. True love is based on the intake of Bible doctrine. PHI 1:9 “And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment.”
