On November 20, 2016 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a message based on Romans 16:17-20. This message was part 3 in the “Co:Mission” series. Below are a set of questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion.
- Read Romans 16:17-20
- Why do you think it matters for the teaching in churches to be truthful?
- What are some examples of false teaching that you have been exposed to INSIDE a church (or from Christians)?
- In today’s message, a three-fold “test for the teachers” was mentioned. According to Romans 16:17-20 we are to examine if something is biblical (16:17), Jesus glorifying (16:18), and promoting goodness (16:19). Think of the examples of false teaching you identified in question 4 above. How did that false teaching “fail” the tests Paul lays out in today’s passage?
- Any particular applications stand out to you from this passage?
