Apostasy

1 But athe Spirit explicitly says that bin later times some will Ifall away from the faith, paying attention to cdeceitful spirits and ddoctrines of demons, 2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars aseared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, 3 [men] who aforbid marriage [and advocate] babstaining from foods which cGod has created to be dgratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For aeverything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is breceived with gratitude; 5 for it is sanctified by means of athe word of God and prayer.

A Good Minister’s Discipline

6 ¶ In pointing out these things to athe brethren, you will be a good bservant of Christ Jesus, [constantly] nourished on the words of the faith and of the Icsound doctrine which you dhave been following. 7 But Ihave nothing to do with aworldly bfables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of cgodliness; 8 for abodily discipline is only of little profit, but bgodliness is profitable for all things, since it cholds promise for the dpresent life and [also] for the [life] to come. 9 aIt is a trustworthy statement deserving full acceptance. 10 For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed aour hope on bthe living God, who is cthe Savior of all men, especially of believers.

He foretelleth that in the latter times there shall be departure from the faith.

1 ¶ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

And to the end that Timothy might not fail in his duty, he furnisheth him with divers precepts belonging thereto.

6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. 7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself [rather] unto godliness. 8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 9 This [is] a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. 10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 11 These things command and teach. 12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. 15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
