CONFRONTING ERROR WITH TRUTH
 
by: Joe R. Price

 Premise: Truth, when spoken forthrightly in love, will not turn the good-hearted away, it will save them - Luke 8:15.

 I. HOW JESUS CONFRONTED ERROR & SIN.

  1. He Had Righteous Indignation Toward Sin - Jno. 2:13-17.
  2. Other Occasions - Matt. 15:1-9, 12-14; Jno. 4:16-18; 8:6, 10f.

 II. LESSONS FROM OTHERS WHO CONFRONTED ERROR AS THEY TAUGHT THE LOST.

  1. The Apostles - (Acts 2:14-40) 5:27-32, 40-42. [Even when threatened, we must boldly teach what needs to be heard.]
  2. Stephen - Acts 6:8-10. [We must speak as the "oracles of God" in order to defeat error (1 Pet. 4:11).]
  3. Peter - Acts 8:17-24. [To spare the sinner's feelings is to leave him lost!]
  4. Paul - Acts 13:6-12. [When we sternly oppose evil/error, the evil-hearted will withstand us, but the good-hearted will believe.]

 III. WHAT WE MUST DO WHEN WE TEACH THE LOST.

  • Love The Sinner - Jno. 3:16.
  • Abhor Error & Sin - Rom. 12:9; 2 Tim. 2:16-18.
  • Trust The Power Of Truth - Lk. 8:15; Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 2:1-5.
  • Avoid Respect Of Persons - Jas. 2:1 (Acts 10:34-35).
  • Be Set For The Defense Of The Gospel - Phil. 1:16; Jude 3.
