1 Timothy 1:1-8 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by order of God our Savior and Christ Jesus our hope - 2 To Timothy, my true son in the faith: 1 May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace. 3 I want you to stay in Ephesus, just as I urged you when I was on my way to Macedonia. Some people there are teaching false doctrines, and you must order them to stop. 4 Tell them to give up those legends and those long lists of ancestors, which only produce arguments; they do not serve God's plan, which is known by faith. 5 The purpose of this order is to arouse the love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and a genuine faith. 6 Some people have turned away from these and have lost their way in foolish discussions. 7 They want to be teachers of God's law, but they do not understand their own words or the matters about which they speak with so much confidence. 8 We know that the Law is good if it is used as it should be used.
