1 Timothy 1:9-10 (KJV) The Antagonist to Sound Doctrine

1 Timothy 1:9-10 (KJV)
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;
Doctrine is instruction, teaching; delineated points of truth.  Notice here that doctrine is contrasted not against lies and falsehoods but against wicked acts of behavior or practice. That doesn’t suggest that doctrine is behavior but that doctrine induces behavior. It also suggests that practice can be an antagonist to doctrine.
It is common these days to hear a progressive preacher say something like, “We’re changing the methods, not the message.” This statement cannot be true for it is impossible but that the message will dictate the methods or else the methods will influence the message.
Behavior, lifestyle and practice must compliment sound doctrine, not be contrary to it.
