1 But the Spirit expressly says, that in future times some will apostatize from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits, and to doctrines concerning demons; 2 through the hypocrisy of liars, who are seared in their own conscience; 3 who forbid to marry, and command to abstain from meats, which God has created to be received with thanksgiving by the faithful, who thoroughly know the truth;- 4 that every creature of God is good, being received with thanksgiving, and nothing is to be rejected; 5 for it is sanctified, by the word of God, and by prayer. 6 Laying these things before the brethren, you will be a good servant of Jesus Christ, nourished by the words of the faith, and of good doctrine, to the knowledge of which you have attained.

7 Cast all your anxious care on him, because he cares for you.
11 It is not what goes into the mouth pollutes the man; but it is what proceeds out of the mouth, that pollutes the man.
34 Take heed, therefore, to yourselves, lest your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and worldly cares, and that day come upon you unawares: for, as a net, 35 it shall inclose all the inhabitants of the earth. 36 Be vigilant, therefore, praying on every occasion, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these approaching evils, and to stand before the Son of Man.
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor catamites, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor misers, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you; but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified, by the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Receive him who is weak in the faith, without regard to differences of opinions. 2 One, indeed, believes he may eat everything; but he who is weak eats herbs only. 3 Let not him who eats, despise him who eats not; and let not him who eats not, condemn him who eats: for God has received him. 4 Who are you that condemn another man's servant? By his own master he stands or falls; and he shall be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand. 5 One, indeed, thinks one day more holy than another: but another thinks every day alike. Let every one be convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes the day, observe it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day to the Lord, does not observe it: he who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. 8 But whether we live, we live to the Lord; and whether we die, we die to the Lord: whether we live, therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to this end, Christ both dies and rose, and lives again, that he might rule over both the dead and the living. 10 But you, why do you condemn your brother? and you, also, why do you despise your brother? for we shall all be placed before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, surely every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." 12 Well, then, every one of us shall give an account of himself to God. 13 Let us, therefore, no more judge one another; but let us decide, rather, not to lay an occasion of stumbling before a brother, or a cause of falling. 14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself; yet, to him who accounts anything to be unclean, to that man it is unclean. 15 Now, if your brother be hurt through your meat, you no longer walk as love requires. Do not destroy him with your meat for whom Christ died. 16 Let not your good, then, be an evil spoken of. 17 For the Reign of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace, and joy, in the Holy Spirit. 18 And he who, by these things, serves Christ, is acceptable to God, and approved by men. 19 Well, then, let us strive after peace, and mutual edification. 20 Do not, for the sake of meat, destroy the work of God. All meats, indeed, are clean; but that meat is hurtful to the man who eats to occasion stumbling. 21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything by which your brother is made to stumble, or to fall, or is weakened. 22 You have faith: keep it to yourself, in the sight of God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. 23 For he who discerns a difference, between meats is condemned, if he eat; because he eats not from faith: for what is not from faith is sin.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should come upon you like a thief. 5 You are all sons of light, and sons of day: we are not sons of night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore, let us not sleep, even as others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they who sleep, sleep in the night; and they who get drunk, get drunk in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
5 But do you watch at all times; bear evil treatment; do the work of an evangelist; fully perform your ministry.
13 Wherefore, having the loins of your mind girded, being vigilant, constantly hope for the gift to be brought to you, at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts, in your ignorance; 15 but as he who has called you is holy, be you also holy; 16 for it is written, "Be you holy, because I am holy."
5 For this purpose, I left you in Crete, that you might set in order the things left unfinished, and to ordain seniors in every city, as I commanded you. 6 If any one be without blame, the husband of one wife, having believing children, not accused of riotous living, nor unruly. 7 For a bishop should be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not prone to anger, not given to wine, not a striker, not one who makes gain by base methods; 8 but hospitable; a lover of good men, prudent, just, holy, temperate; 9 holding fast the true doctrine, as he has been taught; that he may be able, by wholesome teaching, both to exhort and to confute the gain-sayers.
4 Every one who works sin, works also the transgression of law; for sin is the transgression of law. 5 Moreover, you know that he was manifested that he might take away our sins-and in him is no sin. 6 Whoever abides in him, does not sin. Whoever sins has not seen him, neither has known him. 7 Little children, let no one deceive you: he who works righteousness, is righteous, even as He is righteous. 8 He who works sin, is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been begotten by God, does not work sin; because his seed abides in him; and he can not sin, because he has been begotten by God. 10 By this the children of God are discovered, and the children of the devil: whoever works not righteousness, is not of God, neither he who loves not his brother.
19 Now, the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these. Fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 sorcery, enmities, strifes, emulations, wraths, brawlings, factions, sects, 21 envying, murders, intoxications, revellings, and such like: concerning which I foretell you now, as I also have foretold, that they who practice these things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, fidelity, 23 meekness, temperance: against such things there is no law. 24 Besides, they who are Christ's, have crucified the flesh with the passions and lusts. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
1 Christ, then, having suffered for us in the flesh, do you also warm yourselves with the same mind: for he who has suffered in the flesh, has ceased from sin; 2 so that he no longer lives his remaining time in the flesh, to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3 For the time which has passed of life, is sufficient to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, having walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excesses in wine, revellings, carousals, and abominable idolatries. 4 On which account they wonder that you do not run with them, into the same sink of debauchery, reviling you,- 5 who shall give account to him who is prepared to judge the living and the dead. 6 For, to this end of the gospel was preached to the dead, that they might, indeed, be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
18 And we not drunk with wine, by which comes dissoluteness; but be filled with the Spirit:
1 But do you inculcate the things which become wholesome doctrine: 2 that aged men be vigilant, grave, prudent, healthy by faith, love, patience. 3 That aged women, in like manner, be in deportment as becomes sacred persons-not slanderers, not enslaved to much wine, good teachers; 4 that they may persuade the young women to be lovers of their husbands, lovers of their children- 5 to be calm, chaste, careful of their families, good, subject to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be defamed. 6 The young men, in like manner, exhort to govern their passions. 7 In all things make yourself a pattern of good works: in teaching, show incorruptness, gravity, 8 wholesome speech which can not be condemned; that he who is on the opposite side may be ashamed, having nothing bad to say concerning you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant: your adversary, the devil, is walking about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour:
