Now the Holy Spirit clearly says that in the later times some people will stop believing the faith. They will follow spirits that lie and teachings of demons.
Such teachings come from the false words of liars whose consciences are destroyed as if by a hot iron.
They forbid people to marry and tell them not to eat certain foods which God created to be eaten with thanks by people who believe and know the truth.
Everything God made is good, and nothing should be refused if it is accepted with thanks,
because it is made holy by what God has said and by prayer.
By telling these things to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus. You will be made strong by the words of the faith and the good teaching which you have been following.
