 <<  1 Timotius 6 >> 

1CHRISTIAN slaves should treat their masters with respect, and avoid causing dishonour to the name of God and our teaching.

2If they have Christian masters they should not despise them because they work for brothers in the faith. Indeed they should serve them all the better because they are thereby benefiting those who have the same faith and love as themselves. This is the sort of thing you should teach and preach,

3and if anyone tries to teach some doctrinal novelty and does not follow sound teaching (which we base on our Lord Jesus Christ's own words and which leads to Christlike living),

4then he is a conceited idiot! His mind is a morbid jumble of disputation and argument, things which lead to nothing but jealousy, quarrelling, insults and malicious innuendoes

5continual wrangling, in fact, among men of warped minds who have lost their real hold on the truth but a hope to make some profit out of the Christian religion.

6There is a real profit, of course. It is peace of heart for those who live as God would have them live.

7We brought nothing with us when we entered this world and we can be sure we shall take nothing with us when we leave it.

8Surely then, as far as physical things are concerned, it is sufficient for us to keep our bodies fed and clothed.

9For men who set their hearts on being wealthy expose themselves to temptation. They fall into a trap and lay themselves open to all sorts of silly and wicked desires, which are quite capable of utterly ruining and destroying their souls.

10For loving money leads to all kinds of evil, and some men in the struggle to be rich have lost their faith and caused themselves untold agonies of mind.

11But you, the man of God, keep clear of such things. Set your heart on integrity, true piety, faithfulness, love, endurance and gentleness.

12Fight the worthwhile battle of the faith, keep your grip on that life eternal to which you have been called, and to which you boldly professed your loyalty before many witnesses.

13I charge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things and Christ Jesus, who fearlessly witnessed to the truth before Pontius Pilate,

14to keep your commission clean and above reproach until the final coming of Christ.

15This will be, in his own time, the final denouement of God, who is the blessed controller of all things, the king over all kings and the master of all masters,

16the only source of immortality, the One who lives in unapproachable light, the One whom no mortal eye has even seen or ever can see. To him be acknowledged all honour and power for ever, amen!

17Tell those who are rich in this present world not to be contemptuous of others, and not to rest the weight of their confidence on the transitory power of wealth but on the living God, who generously gives us everything for our enjoyment.

18Tell them to do good, to be rich in kindly actions, to be ready to give to others and to sympathize with those in distress.

19Their security should be invested in the life to come, so that they may be sure of holding a share in the life which is real and permanent.

20Timothy, guard most carefully your divine commission. Avoid the Godless mixture of contradictory notions which is falsely know as "knowledge"

21some have followed it [and lost their faith]. Grace be with you all.
