Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; they will obey lying spirits and follow the teachings of demons. 1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
2 Such teachings are spread by deceitful liars, whose consciences are dead, as if burnt with a hot iron. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
3 Such people teach that it is wrong to marry and to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten, after a prayer of thanks, by those who are believers and have come to know the truth. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
4 Everything that God has created is good; nothing is to be rejected, but everything is to be received with a prayer of thanks, 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
5 because the word of God and the prayer make it acceptable to God. 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
