1 Timothy 3:1-16

1 Faithful the word, If any strive for superintendence, he eagerly desires a good work. 2 Therefore an overseer must be irreprehensible, husband of one wife, sober, of sound mind, well arranged, hospitable, giving instruction; 3 Not intoxicated, not a quarrelsome person, not occupied in sordid gain; but equitable, without fighting, exempt from avarice; 4 Presiding well over his own house, having the children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (And if any know not to preside over his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not newly planted, lest rendered proud he fall into condemnation of the accuser. 7 And he must also have good testimony from them without;lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the accuser. 8 Deacons likewise grave, not speaking equivocally, not holding to much wine, not occupied in sordid gain; 9 Having the mystery of faith in pure consciousness. 10 And let these also first be tried; then let them perform the office of footman, being blameless. 11 Wives also grave, not accusers, sober, faithful in all things. 12 Let the deacons be husbands of one wife, presiding well over the children and their own houses. 13 For they having served well, acquire to themselves a good step, and much freedom of speech in the faith which in Christ Jesus. 14 These I write to thee, hoping to come to thee quickly: 15 And if I delay, that thou shouldest know how thou must be occupied in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and base of the truth. 16 And manifestly great is the mystery of devotion: God was manifested in the flesh, was justified in the Spirit, was seen by angels, was proclaimed in the nations, was believed on in the world, was received up in glory.

2 John 1:7-11

7 For many cheats come into the world, they not acknowledging Jesus Christ coming in the flesh. This is the cheat and antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, lest we should destroy what things we have wrought, but we should receive a full reward. 9 Every one passing by, and not remaining in the teaching of Christ, has not God. He remaining in the teaching of Christ, the same also has the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any to you, and bring not this teaching, receive ye him not into the household, and to rejoice tell him not: 11 For he telling him to rejoice, partakes of his evil works.

Joshua 24:14-15

Romans 12:1-21

1 I Beseech you therefore, brethren, by the compassions of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, your reasonable service. 2 And be ye not conformed to this life, but be transformed by the renovation of your mind, for you to prove what the good, and the pleasing, and the perfected will of God. 3 For I say, by the race given me, to every one being with you, not to entertain a high opinion of one's self above what is fitting to think: but to think to be discreet, as God has divided the measure of faith to each. 4 For as in one body we have many members, and all members have not the same action: 5 So we, the many, are one body in Christ, and the members for one another. 6 And having gifts different according to the grace given us, whether prophecy, according to the due proportion of faith; 7 Whether service, in service: whether he teaching, in instruction; 8 Whether he beseeching, in supplication: he imparting, in simplicity; he placed before, in earnestness; he compassionating, in cheerfulness. 9 Love unfeigned. Hating evil; fastened to good. 10 In brotherly love, being kindly affectioned to one another; in honour preceding one another. 11 In study not slothful; boiling in the spirit; serving the Lord; 12 Rejoicing in hope; holding out under pressure; persevering in prayer; 13 Participating in the necessities of the holy ones; pursuing hospitality. 14 Praise them driving you out: praise ye, and curse not. 15 To rejoice with the rejoicing, and weep with the weeping. 16 Thinking the same towards one another. Not thinking high things but being led by humble things. Be not wise with yourselves. 17 Giving hack evil for evil to none. Providing good things before all men. 18 If possible of you, living peaceably with all men. 19 Avenging not yourselves, beloved, but give ye place to anger: for it has been written, Vengeance to me; I will repay, says the Lord. 20 If therefore thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for doing this, thou shalt heap up-coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Romans 14:1-23

1 Him being weak in faith receive ye, not to judgments of conversations. 2 One truly believes to eat all things: and he being weak eats vegetables. 3 Let not him eating despise him not eating: and let not him not eating judge him eating: for God has received him. 4 Who art thou judging another's servant? to his own lord he stands or falls. And he shall be made to stand: for God is powerful to make him stand. 5 For one truly judges day above day: and one judges every day. Let each one be perfectly certain in his own mind. 6 He minding the day, minds to the Lord; and he not minding the day, to the Lord he minds not. He eating, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he not eating, to the Lord he eats not, and he gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself. 8 For whether we live, to the Lord we live: and whether we die, to the Lord we die: therefore whether we live, and whether we die, we are of the Lord. 9 For, for this Christ also died, and also arose, and returned again to life, that he might also reign over the dead and the living. 10 And why judgest thou thy brother? or why also despisest thou thy brother? for we shall all stand at the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it has been written, I live, says the Lord, for to me shall every knee bend, and every tongue acknowledge to God. 12 So therefore shall each of us give word for himself to God. 13 Then let us no more judge one another: but rather judge ye this, not to put a stumble or offence to thy brother. 14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing common by itself; except to any one reckoning to be common, to that one it is common. 15 And if by food thy brother is grieved, thou no more walkest by love. Not by thy food destroy him, for whom Christ died. 16 Therefore let not your good be defamed. 17 For the kingdom of God is not food and drink; but justice, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he in these serving Christ, pleasing to God, and acceptable to men. 19 So therefore, let us pursue the things of peace, and the things for the building up for one another. 20 Not for sake of food destroy thou the work of God. Truly all things clean; but evil to the man eating by offence. 21 Good not to eat flesh, nor drink wine, nor in what thy brother stumbles, or is offended, or is weak. 22 Thou has faith; have to thyself before God. Happy he judging not himself in what he proves. 23 And he being judged if he eat, has been condemned for not of faith; and everything not of faith is sin.

Hebrews 10:26

26 For we sinning voluntarily after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there is left no more a sacrifice for sins,
