1 Timothy 1: 3-11  As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so you may command certain men not to teach false doctorines any longer nor to devote themselves to MYTHS and ENDLESS GENEALOGIES.  These promote CONTROVERSIES rather than God's work -- which is by FAITH.  The goal of this command is LOVE, which comes from a PURE heart and a GOOD conscience and a sincere FAITH.  Some have wandered away from these and turned to MEANINGLESS TALK.  They want to be teachers of the law, but they don't know what they are talking about or what they confidently affirm.  We know that the law is good if one uses it PROPERLY.  We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,  for adultuerers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers -- and for whatever is contrary to the sound doctorine  that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me. 2 Corinthians 11:10-15  As surely as the truth of Christ is in me, nobody in the regions of Achaia will stop this boasting of mine.  Why? Because I do NOT love you? God knows I do!  And I will KEEP ON DOING what I AM DOING in order to cut the ground under the those who want an opprotunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about.  For such men are FALSE APOSTLES, decietful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder, for SATAN HIMSELF masquerades as an angel of light.  It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
