Counterfeit Christianity

If subsequent generations are to hold fast to the things of Christ, the people of God must be grounded in the truths of Scripture. Paul warned Timothy about false teachers arising from within the church, and Alistair Begg notes that counterfeit Christianity remains a matter of pressing urgency for the Church today. Christians must be instructed in sound doctrine in order live out our faith correctly and recognize errors in teaching.

Household of Faith, Volume 1

As we view culture unraveling before our eyes, some are tempted to throw up their hands in despair, while others plunge headlong into political activism, believing that to be the answer to our problems. We must, however, affirm the priority of the proclamation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, by which the lives of men and women are changed.

For this reason, we're excited about presenting these studies in 1 Timothy. Here we find God's purpose for His people. He has planned from all of eternity to redeem a people that are His very own, in order ...


Public Prayer: Its Importance and Scope

Criticizing those in positions of leadership is common, even among Christians. Alistair Begg reminds us that because Christ died so that all may be saved, we should pray for all, including our leaders. Rather than complain, we should accept God’s providence and seek to please Him in our conversations.

Elders-Taking Care of God's Church

A church will not progress beyond the spiritual maturity of its leaders, so the appointment of qualified elders is of vital importance. Alistair Begg reminds us that when it comes to leadership, the Bible places greater emphasis on character than on giftedness. Christian leaders must pursue godly character because when a Christian leader falls into sin, many others are hurt.

Deacons and Their Wives

What exactly is the role of a deacon, and how does it differ from the role of an elder in the church? Alistair Begg clarifies the similarities and differences between these equally valued roles and describes the character requirements that are necessary for deacons and their wives. Serving the church well, with a good attitude, brings blessing to the servant and glory to God, regardless of the roles we fulfill.

The Mystery of Godliness

“The Gospel is true whether we believe it or not.” Alistair Begg echoes Paul’s sentiment expressed in 1 Timothy 3:14-16 and stresses the responsibility of the Church to safeguard the truth by studying Scripture, obeying it, and living it out with conviction. God chose to reveal the mystery of godliness through the incarnation of His Son, Jesus Christ--- a mystery that remains veiled to those who are perishing, but is salvation to all who believe.

The Approaching Apostasy

Paul warned Timothy that some who professed to be Christians would abandon the faith and turn from God. Alistair Begg explains that ultimately, the source of this abandonment was spiritual: hypocritical teachers who appeared wise, but actually sought to obscure the truth of the Gospel. When we know God’s Word and live in full enjoyment of His provision, we will not turn from God to the deceitfulness of false religion

Pastoral Priorities in Dealing with False Teaching

Many people are searching for spiritual teachers that will tell them what they want to hear rather than what they need to hear. Alistair Begg reminds us that those who teach must be devoted to Scripture and the pursuit of godly character so that they can preach with integrity and confidence. Pastors and church leaders must be nourished in the deep truths of the faith and persevere in godliness because the salvation of those who listen is at stake.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Paul instructed Timothy in the appropriate pastoral care of widows, as well as older and younger men and women in his congregation. Alistair Begg emphasizes that pastors must fulfill these responsibilities with genuine respect and affection while guarding against even the slightest suggestion of impropriety. Although the Church has an important role to play in caring for those in need, providing for our own relatives is an indisputable Christian duty.
