The Apostle Paul instructed Titus to “teach what accords with sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1). What is sound doctrine? The word “sound” refers to something that is healthy. Thus, sound doctrine is the teaching of healthy, biblical truth. 


Sound doctrine is the missing ingredient in many churches today, often led by pastors who feed their congregations spiritual junk food. That does not mean sound doctrine should be boring or unsatisfying; it’s not like eating your vegetables. However, a healthy church results from a steady diet of biblical food from its pastors. 


Someone once defined doctrine as “teaching from God about God that directs us to the glory of God.” Are you consuming enough sound biblical doctrine to change the way you think and act?
