    3. In I Timothy 4:1-3 we read of Paul's warning written to Timothy about false teachers and what they would teach. What did he tell Timothy about them?

    a. The Spirit referred to the apostasy that would occur. What warning
    is there in these verses for believers today?

    4. Consider the instruction of I Timothy 4:6-7a. What did Paul tell Timothy to do?

    a. How do the words of faith and sound doctrine both protect you from false teaching and nourish you?

    5. Paul told Timothy to exercise/discipline yourself toward godliness (verse 7b). Define the word, godliness.

    a. I Timothy 4:8 gives us the reason he told him to do that. What was it?

    (1.) Verse 8a in the NLT reads, Physical exercise has some value, but
    spiritual exercise is much more important. In what way does this
