The Problem that occur in some Churches and in Society.
The Meaning, and the Solution  ::reading::

The Problem in ministry it does have it issues with its leadership, but we know the body it lit by example and by truth, and by virtue, things in the church should remain confidential, only with one or two witness, that it may be in according with the word of God of Israel.
Here are some issues with leadership that may give some understanding of ministry.
The word of this study are very strong even for me but it, but there God’s words   

I begin in 1 Tim 1:3-11 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm. But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.

Heb 8:6-8 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, (Jesus) inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah--

Heb 5:13-14 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

unskilled in the word of righteousness: The readers of this letter did not necessarily lack information concerning righteousness; they lacked experience in practicing the information they had. Maturity comes from practice.
Full age describes the spiritually mature. Reason of use means “practice” or “habit.” Those who make a habit of obeying the message of righteousness mature in the faith and are able to distinguish good and evil. We should make a daily habit of searching the scriptures as the Berea did daily!

We read in Acts 17:11 These were more fair-minded in searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.
Comparing
Acts 17:10-13  Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. Therefore many of them believed, and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men. But when the Jews from Thessalonica learned that the word of God was preached by Paul at Berea, they came there also and stirred up the crowds.
{See 1 Timothy 3: 15 -18}
 
 The Problem
Titus 1:7-9 For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.
Comparing
Titus 1:10-12 For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain. One of them, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons."
Comparing
1Titus 1:14-15 not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth. To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.

The word fable is always used in contrast to Christian doctrine {see 1 Tim. 4:6, 7}. These Jewish fables were probably legends about OT figures, like some that survive to this day in nonbiblical writings. This speculation was not only opposed to the truth, but it also undermined the faith {Titus 1: v. 13}. This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, commandments of men: The rules that come from false doctrine are contrasted with the good works {Titus 1:16 v. 16}They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work. Meaning that they should proceed from sound doctrine. {See Mark 7:1–16} for examples of fables and commandments of men.

No Other Doctrine
1 Tim 1:3 teach no other doctrine Comparing


1 Tim 1:3-11  As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
Of the right use and purpose of the law
Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
Comparing
1 Tim 4:3 forbidding marrying, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

The false teachers at Ephesus evidently disparaged the material world as evil, which became a central doctrine of the full-grown Gnosticism of the second century.
God’s creation is called “very good.” Believers are to enjoy the good things God creates and gives them to manage.
Continued growth in the church occurs through words of faith and instruction in good doctrine. Sound doctrine is the basis of a healthy ministry and correct practice.

We read in 1 Tim 4:6 If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good and sound minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good and sound doctrine which you have carefully followed.

Comparing
Col 2:20-23 Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations-- "Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle," which all concern things which perish with the using--according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.
Paul warned that such rituals were useless and had no spiritual value.
Comparing
Col 2:16-19 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.
Comparing
Rev 2:14-15  But I have a few things against you, because you have their those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
Comparing
2 John 1:9-11  Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.                         
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.
Comparing
2 John 1:7-12 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds. Having many things to write to you, I did not wish to do so with paper and ink; but I hope to come to you and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

Paul understands the church as the “house of God” . Disputes do not promote “house order” in the church. The focus of a believer’s life should be the clear and sound doctrine found in the Word of God, not human speculation.
We read in 1 Tim 3:14-15 These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
Comparing
Heb 13:9 be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
Comparing
Titus 1:9-13  Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

 Gal 5:9-10 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

The Land of Idols
Acts 15:20  but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood.

The Solution
Comparing

2 Tim 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
given by inspiration “God-breathed.” In this verse, Paul teaches that God was actively involved in the revelation of His truth to the apostles and prophets, who wrote it down. The Author of the Bible is God Himself. Thus Scripture is true in all that it affirms and is completely authoritative.                                                                                                               

We read in 2 Peter 1:19-21 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Comparing
1 Peter 1:20-21 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

Reproof is conviction. This is not simply a rebuke; it is demonstrating some truth beyond dispute. {John 16: 7} I will send Him: Jesus explained that the Holy Spirit will convict the world. The Holy Spirit would not be given to the world, but to believers. The coming of the Spirit would be more profitable to believers than even the physical presence of Christ, since the Spirit could dwell in all believers at the same time.
{John 16:8-9} And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
{John 15:26-27} the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
{John 16:}He will convict the world of all sin.

The study of the Bible is profitable in at least four different ways.                                         
Doctrine is teaching. Paul highlights correct teaching first; Luke also emphasizes the Jerusalem church’s commitment to doctrine first.

We read in Acts 2:41-42 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Comparing
2 Tim 2:15 Correction refers to setting something straight.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Instruction refers to the process of training a child. In this list, only one of these terms is oriented to knowledge and information—that is, doctrine
Comparing
Titus 2:10-14 Not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people

If this helps I believe in God the Father God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit A-men
