Doctrine is as important to living as air is important to breathing — without it you will die! In 1 Timothy 4:16 the Apostle Paul warns his apprentice, Timothy, to “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do you will save both yourself and your hearers.” The Bible portrays doctrine as how we view God. Therefore, everyone has a “doctrine” since everyone has a certain view of God. It is a matter of whether a person has a biblical view of God, or if a person has an unbiblical or distorted view of God. We are never ashamed to chase hard after God and examine how we view God in comparison to how the Bible describes God as fact.
