3If anyone teaches anything different and doesn't agree with sound teaching about our Lord Jesus Christ and teaching that is consistent with godliness,4that person is conceited. They don't understand anything but have a sick obsession with debates and arguments. This creates jealousy, conflict, verbal abuse, and evil suspicions.5There is constant bickering between people whose minds are ruined and who have been robbed of the truth. They think that godliness is a way to make money!
20Timothy, protect what has been given to you in trust. Avoid godless and pointless discussions and the contradictory claims of so-called "knowledge."21When some people adopted this false knowledge, they missed the goal of faith. May grace be with you all.
