1 Timothy 1:1-6

1 From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by order of God our Savior and Christ Jesus our hope -
2 To Timothy, my true son in the faith: 1 May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace.
3 I want you to stay in Ephesus, just as I urged you when I was on my way to Macedonia. Some people there are teaching false doctrines, and you must order them to stop.
4 Tell them to give up those legends and those long lists of ancestors, which only produce arguments; they do not serve God's plan, which is known by faith.
5 The purpose of this order is to arouse the love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and a genuine faith.
6 Some people have turned away from these and have lost their way in foolish discussions.
