1. Last week we talked about our "ministry", and we all shared what we thought our ministry was, and why we chose to be in a small group. How does what you've read in Chapter 4 refine or change your thoughts?
- In reading chapter 4 it seems pretty clear that we can't do this on our own. There is strength in numbers, as long as the numbers are marching to His beat. I think it prudent to march together in the word and spend time seeking the truth, rather than our truth.
2. How would you explain verse 14? What do you think Paul was thinking of when he warned against being "tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes"? Write down some common wrong teachings that you've heard taught -- or know people believe today.
