Hold Fast the Doctrine of Christ!

2 John 1:9 AMPC … Anyone who runs on ahead [of God] and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ [who is not content with what He taught] does not have God; but he who continues to live in the doctrine (teaching) of Christ [does have God], he has both the Father and the Son.

John 8:31-32 AMPC … So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.
 
Abide, hold fast the doctrine of Christ
Encourage sound doctrine
Do not compromise it
Guard it by opposing error
=> then you will know the TRUTH & be set free
=> your witness for Christ will be “clear”, unpolluted

.

Remember, halfway{compromise} between the truth and a lie IS STILL a lie!

. 

Titus 1:9-10 AMPC … He must hold fast to the sure and trustworthy Word of God as he was taught it, so that he may be able both to give stimulating instruction and encouragement in sound (wholesome) doctrine and to refute and convict those who contradict and oppose it [showing the wayward their error].

1 Timothy 4:16 NKJV … Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

Proverbs 25:26 NLT … If the godly compromise with the wicked, it is like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring.

From NetBible Pro 25:26
To see the righteous(godly) moved from their steadfastness through fear or favour in the presence of the wicked is as disheartening as to find the stream turbid and defiled at which you were longing to quench your thirst …
