Is Doctrine important to you? There a lot of folks out there that concider Doctrine
not import........

Doctrine is important because Jesus thought it was important. Jesus said
John7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

What He is saying is that we who truly seek God's will understand that Jesus' teachings are from God and that it is important to understand this because that is the way of life for a child of God.Also in John 8:31,32 Jesus said

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
This is His doctrine-His teachings-His instructions to abide in.

Doctrine is very important, our faith is based upon hearing it
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
We place our faith on the teachings of scripture, the gospel which is found in scripture.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

We come to the father through doctrine, through scripture. The studying of doctrine is so important. We need to study and make sure everything we believe lines up with scripture. We do not want to be lead astray. Doctrine is important because it will guide how you live your life

Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness, blasphemies

Folks,what do you believe ? Do you believe the scripture or do you believe the opinions and traditions of men. When you believe a lie it will lead you astray. But believing the truth and acting on it will bring one to eternity. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
