The letters to Timothy and Titus have a lot to say about what good Bible teaching is. They also have a lot more to say about what bad Bible teaching is. The contrast between the two is interesting and worth studying for all would teach God's word.
On the day of Pentecost, after the 3,000 were baptized, we read that "they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the break of bread and to prayer" (Acts 2:42).

This past week Dee Bowman, faithful Christian and preacher, left this life and went on to his reward. While I never had the privilege of meeting him, I have benefited greatly from his sermons and articles. For today's post I want to share one of Dee's articles for your reading.
