2 Timothy 1 Verse 13

13 Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 14[1]

            A common theme runs throughout all the pastoral letters, that a pattern exists for the sound words to be preached. When a pastor preaches the truth, there is a pre-existing system of interlocking truths he must work through. This isn’t negotiable, where he can change truth to fit his view or his churches view. The bible is laid out with clear instruction on how to preach, and what to preach. We should not aim at exulting man, but exulting Christ, with faith and love.
