Balanced Evangelism
2 Timothy 3:16-4:2

A) "Profitable" (2 Timothy 3:16)
- Scripture is from God, so there cannot be falsehood in the Scripture.
- Scripture is written in a balanced way (for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness), so it must be taught that way.
B) "Perfect" (2 Timothy 3:17)
- The goal of study/evangelism is to make us competent/complete/perfect.
- We must evangelize with that goal in mind.
C) "Prepared" (2 Timothy 4:1)
- Our final exam is the final exam for all mankind.
- No one (that is capable of being accountable) is exempt from this exam, so doesn't that show us the need for evangelism?
D) "Preach" (2 Timothy 4:2)
- Once we understand these other 3 things, we are ready to evangelize the world.
- The world was turned upside down once before (Acts 17:7)... There is no plan B!
- We must be willing to teach the world, but zeal does not equal truthful teaching (Romans 10:1-3).
- Therefore, it is imperative that we are balanced in our zeal and our knowledge.
