2 Timothy 3:1-9
2 Timothy: The Life of A Disciple: Each One Reach One, Each One Teach One

In the 1970's, a patient went to the doctor dying from an unknown illness.  Upon further examination, it was discovered that the man had been making himself sick as he was ingesting mercury in minute doses from some dinnerware.  He wanted to be strong and vibrant and alive, but he was actually weakening and slowly killing himself.  This can happen in churches as well.  Paul tells Timothy to have nothing to do with men that actually weaken the church from within.  In this message, we are encouraged to ask if we are part of the problem, mercury, or part of the solution, medicine?
