1 Timothy 2:7

7 and that is why I was sent as an apostle and teacher of the Gentiles, to proclaim the message of faith and truth. I am not lying; I am telling the truth! 1

1 Timothy 2:7 In-Context

5 For there is one God, and there is one who brings God and human beings together, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave himself to redeem the whole human race. That was the proof at the right time that God wants everyone to be saved,
7 and that is why I was sent as an apostle and teacher of the Gentiles, to proclaim the message of faith and truth. I am not lying; I am telling the truth!
8 In every church service I want the men to pray, men who are dedicated to God and can lift up their hands in prayer without anger or argument.
9 I also want the women to be modest and sensible about their clothes and to dress properly; not with fancy hair styles or with gold ornaments or pearls or expensive dresses,
