1 Timothy 1:8-9; 1 Timothy 3:5; 1 Timothy 3:15; 1 Timothy 5:8
But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully,
realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers
(but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?),
but in case I am delayed, I write so that you will know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth.
But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
