Instructions to Timothy

1 The Spirit1 clearly says that in later times2 some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits3 and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.4 3 They forbid people to marry5 and order them to abstain from certain foods,6 which God created7 to be received with thanksgiving8 by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good,9 and nothing is to be rejected10 if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God11 and prayer. 6 If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith12 and of the good teaching that you have followed.13 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales;14 rather, train yourself to be godly.15 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things,16 holding promise for both the present life17 and the life to come.18
