If anyone teaches other doctrine and does not agree with the sound teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the teaching that promotes godliness,
he is conceited, understanding nothing, but having a sick interest in disputes and arguments over words. From these come envy, quarreling, slanders, evil suspicions,
and constant disagreement among men whose minds are depraved and deprived of the truth, who imagine that godlinessa is a way to material gain.b6
But godliness with contentment is a great gain.
For we brought nothing into the world, andc we can take nothing out.
But if we have food and clothing,d we will be content with these.
But those who want to be rich fall into temptation, a trap, and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge people into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is a roote of all kinds of evil, and by craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.
