4Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.G1161G4151G3004G4490G3754G1722G5306G2540G5100G868G4102G4337G4108G4151G2532G1319G11402These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are deadc.G5573G1722G5272G2743G2398G4893G27433They will say it is wrong to be married and wrong to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten with thanks by faithful people who know the truth.G2967G1060G567G1033G3739G2316G2936G1519G3336G3326G2169G4103G2532G1921G2254Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks.G3754G3956G2938G2316G2570G2532G3762G579G2983G3326G21695For we know it is made acceptablec by the word of God and prayer.G1063G37G1223G3056G2316G2532G1783

Instead, train yourself to be godly.G1161G3868G952G2532G1126G3454G1161G1128G4572G4314G21508"Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come."G1063G4984G1129G2076G5624G4314G3641G1161G2150G2076G5624G4314G3956G2192G1860G2222G3568G2532G31959This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it.G4103G3056G2532G514G3956G59410This is why we work hard and continue to strugglec, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Savior of all people and particularly of all believers.G1063G1519G5124G2872G2532G2872G2532G3679G3754G1679G1909G2198G2316G3739G2076G4990G3956G444G3122G410311Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them.G5023G3853G2532G132112Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young.
