Misleadings in Doctrine and Living

1 Paul, 1an apostle of 2Christ Jesus 3according to the commandment of 4God our Savior, and of 5Christ Jesus, who is our 6hope, 2 To 7Timothy, 8my true child in the faith: 9Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and 10Christ Jesus our Lord. 3 As I urged you aupon my departure for 11Macedonia, bremain on at 12Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to 13teach strange doctrines, 4 nor to cpay attention to 14myths and endless 15genealogies, which give rise to mere 16speculation rather than 17furthering dthe administration of God which is by faith. 5 But the goal of our e18instruction is love 19from a pure heart and a 20good conscience and a sincere 21faith. 6 For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to 22fruitless discussion, 7 23wanting to be 24teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions. 8 But we know that 25the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 realizing the fact that 26law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and 27rebellious, for the 28ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and 29profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers 10 fand g30immoral men hand 31homosexuals iand 32kidnappers jand 33liars kand 34perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to 35sound teaching, 11 according to 36the glorious gospel of 37the blessed God, with which I have been 38entrusted. 12 I thank 39Christ Jesus our Lord, who has 40strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, 41putting me into service, 13 even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a 42persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was 43shown mercy because 44I acted ignorantly in unbelief; 14 and the 45grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the 46faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. 15 47It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that 48Christ Jesus came into the world to 49save sinners, among whom 50I am foremost of all. 16 Yet for this reason I 51found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might 52demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those lwho would believe in Him for eternal life. 17 Now to the 53King meternal, 54immortal, 55invisible, the 56only God, 57be honor and glory nforever and ever. Amen. 18 This 58command I entrust to you, Timothy, 59my oson, in accordance with the 60prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you 61fight the good fight, 19 keeping 62faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to p63their faith. 20 qAmong these are 64Hymenaeus and 65Alexander, whom I have 66handed over to Satan, so that they will be 67taught not to blaspheme.
