If you put the brethren in remembrance of these things, you shall be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, which you have attained.
For fornicators, for homosexuals, for slave traders, for liars, for perjurers, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
For I give you good doctrine, forsake not my law.
Your words were found, and I did eat them; and your word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by your name, O LORD God of hosts.
Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe who is instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, who brings forth out of his treasure things new and old.
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn everyone night and day with tears.
I have showed you all things, how that so laboring you ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some way, as reminding you, because of the grace that is given to me of God,
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
For this cause have I sent unto you Timothy, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which are in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church.
Who also has made us able ministers of the new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.
But in all things presenting ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, who is the head, even Christ:
But that you also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
Nevertheless, to what we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
And not holding the Head, from whom all the body by joints and ligaments having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increases with the increase of God.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a beloved brother, and a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord:
And sent Timothy, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellow worker in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to encourage you concerning your faith:
Take heed unto yourself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear you.
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
Therefore I remind you that you stir up the gift of God, which is in you by the laying on of my hands.
Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the ruin of the hearers.
But you have fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience,
But continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they draw to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
In all things showing yourself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing incorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
Therefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth.
This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
Whoever goes beyond, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God. He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son.
