Greetings from Paul

1This letter is from Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus, appointed by the command of God our Savior and Christ Jesus, who gives us hope.G3972G652G2424G5547G2596G2003G2316G2257G4990G2532G2962G2424G5547G3588G2257G1680 2I am writing to Timothy, my true son in the faith. May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace.G5095G1103G5043G1722G4102G5485G1656G1515G575G2316G2257G3962G2532G2424G5547G2257G2962

Warnings against False Teachings

3When I left for Macedonia, I urged you to stay there in Ephesus and stop those whose teaching is contrary to the truth.G2531G3870G4571G4357G1722G2181G4198G1519G3109G2443G3853G5100G2085G3361G2085 4Don't let them waste their time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don't help people live a life of faith in God.G3366G4337G3454G2532G562G1076G3748G3930G2214G3123G2228G2316G3620G3588G1722G4102 5The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.G1161G5056G3852G2076G26G1537G2513G2588G2532G18G4893G2532G4102G505 6But some people have missed this whole point. They have turned away from these things and spend their time in meaningless discussions.G3739G5100G795G1624G1519G3150 7They want to be known as teachers of the law of Moses, but they don't know what they are talking about, even though they speak so confidently.G2309G1511G3547G3361G3539G3383G3739G3004G3383G4012G5101G1226 8We know that the law is good when used correctly.G1161G1492G3754G3551G2570G1437G5100G5530G846G3545 9For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders.G1492G5124G3754G3551G2749G3756G2749G1342G1161G459G2532G506G765G2532G268G462G2532G952G3964G2532G3389G409 10The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teachingG4205G733G405G5583G1965G2532G1536G2087G480G5198G1319 11that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.G2596G1391G2098G3107G2316G3739G4100G1473G4100

Paul’s Gratitude for God’s Mercy

12I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him,G2532G2192G5485G5547G2424G2257G2962G3588G1743G3165G3754G2233G3165G4103G5087G1519G1248 13even though I used to blaspheme the name of Christ. In my insolence, I persecuted his people. But God had mercy on me because I did it in ignorance and unbelief.G3588G5607G4386G989G2532G1376G2532G5197G235G1653G3754G4160G50G1722G570 14Oh, how generous and gracious our Lord was! He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus.G1161G5485G2257G2962G5250G3326G4102G2532G26G3588G1722G5547G2424 15This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners"—and I am the worst of them all.G4103G3056G2532G514G3956G594G3754G5547G2424G2064G1519G2889G4982G268G3739G1473G1510G4413 16But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life.G235G5124G1223G1653G2443G1722G1698G4413G2424G5547G1731G3956G3115G4314G5296G3195G4100G1909G846G1519G2222G166 17All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen.G1161G935G165G862G517G3441G4680G2316G5092G2532G1391G1519G165G165G281

Timothy’s Responsibility

18Timothy, my son, here are my instructions for you, based on the prophetic words spoken about you earlier. May they help you fight well in the Lord's battles.G5026G3852G3908G4671G5043G5095G2596G4394G4254G1909G4571G2443G4754G1722G846G4754G2570G4752 19Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.G2192G4102G2532G18G4893G3739G5100G683G4012G4102G3489 20Hymenaeus and Alexander are two examples. I threw them out and handed them over to Satan so they might learn not to blaspheme God.G3739G2076G5211G2532G223G3739G3860G4567G2443G3811G3361G987
