In his book, Doctrine Matters, author and pastor John Piper writes, “Doctrine is not a landing strip but a launching pad. It leads us to pursue preparation rather than ponder consummation, to lay hold on the greater things to come rather than lingering over the great things of the past. Christian doctrine is living and active and supernaturally supercharged to take us where we have not yet dreamed, in ways we have not yet dreamed.” Those are unexpected words to use for something many of us may find, well, . . . boring. But boring is the last word on the Apostle Paul's mind, however, as he describes the affect sound Biblical teaching has upon God's people. His passion is contagious as he writes to his young ministry assistant in 1 Timothy 1.
