2 Timothy 2:14-15
Keep reminding them of these things.
Warn them before God against quarreling
about words; it is of no value, and only
ruins those who listen. Do your best to
present yourself to God as one approved, a
workman who does not need to be
ashamed and who correctly handles the
word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:16-18
Avoid godless chatter, because those who
indulge in it will become more and more
ungodly. Their teaching will spread like
gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus
and Philetus, who have wandered away
from the truth. They say that the
resurrection has already taken place, and
they destroy the faith of some.
2 Timothy 2:19
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands
firm, sealed with this inscription: ‘The Lord
knows those who are His,’ and, ‘Everyone
who confesses the name of the Lord must
turn away from wickedness.’
