Bible: 1 Tim 3:16-4:3

3:16 And we all agree, 1  our religion contains amazing revelation: 2 

He 3  was revealed in the flesh,

vindicated by the Spirit, 4 

seen by angels,

proclaimed among Gentiles,

believed on in the world,

taken up in glory.

Timothy’s Ministry in the Later Times

4:1 Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the later times some will desert the faith and occupy themselves 5  with deceiving spirits and demonic teachings, 6  4:2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars 7  whose consciences are seared. 8  4:3 They will prohibit marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
