And I beseech you, brethren, mark those who cause dissensions and offences outside of the doctrine which ye have learned, and avoid them.
Now we charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks out of order, and not after the doctrine which ye received of us.
Even as I besought thee to remain at Ephesus when I went into Macedonia, that thou might charge some that they not teach diverse doctrine,
Woe unto the world because of offenses! For it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!
And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the congregation ; but if he neglects to hear the congregation, let him be unto thee as a worldly man and a publican.
Then he said unto the disciples, It is impossible that offenses will not come, but woe unto the one through whom they come!
Then certain men who came down from Judaea taught the brethren and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.
forasmuch as we have heard that certain ones who went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised and keep the law, to whom we gave no such commandment,
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that ye be perfect, joined together in the same understanding and in the same perception.
For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying and strife and divisions, are ye not carnal and walk as men?
I wrote unto you in an epistle not to associate with fornicators,
For first of all, when ye come together in the congregation , I hear that there are divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
for there is not another; but there are some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of the Christ.
And that in spite of the false brethren, who entered secretly to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus that they might bring us into bondage;
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Brethren, be imitators of me and consider those who so walk, as ye have us for a pattern.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, according to the elements of the world, and not after Christ.
And if anyone does not hearken unto our word by this epistle, note that one and do not join with him, that he may be ashamed.
If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the doctrine which is according to godliness,
having the appearance of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who covertly shall bring in destructive sects and shall deny the Lord that bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us; but this happened that it might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who do not confess Jesus Christ coming in flesh. This same is a deceiver and antichrist.
