All slaves who believe must give complete respect to their own masters. In this way no one will speak evil of God's name and what we teach.
Slaves whose masters also believe should respect their masters even though their masters are also believers. As a result, believers who are slaves should serve their masters even better because those who receive the benefit of their work are believers whom they love. Teach and encourage people to do these things.
Whoever teaches false doctrine and doesn't agree with the accurate words of our Lord Jesus Christ and godly teachings
is a conceited person. He shows that he doesn't understand anything. Rather, he has an unhealthy desire to argue and quarrel about words. This produces jealousy, rivalry, cursing, suspicion,
and conflict between people whose corrupt minds have been robbed of the truth. They think that a godly life is a way to make a profit.
A godly life brings huge profits to people who are content with what they have.
