New Living Translation


1 Timothy 1 : 3-6

Warnings against False Teachings
 3  When I left for Macedonia, I urged you to stay there in Ephesus and stop those whose teaching is contrary to the truth.  4  Don't let them waste their time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, [4]  which don't help people live a life of faith in God. [4] 
   5  The 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.  6  But some people have missed this whole point. They have turned away from these things and spend their time in meaningless discussions.
<<  1:4a Greek in myths and endless genealogies, which cause speculation. 1:4b Greek a stewardship of God in faith.
