THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO
Paul describes the latter-day apostasy—Christ is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe.
the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the alatter
times some shall bdepart
from the faith, giving heed to cseducing
spirits, and ddoctrines
For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
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, awhereunto
thou hast attained.
But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
For bodily exercise profiteth alittle
: but bgodliness
is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
These things command and teach.
Till I come, give attendance to areading
, to exhortation, to doctrine.
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both asave
thyself, and them that hear thee.
