1 Timothy 1:3:11
3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia—remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. 5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm. 8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed GOD which was committed to my trust. (NKJV)
I love you the passage because it tell us what do. What we need to put away from us and what we need to do as Christians.
1 Timothy 1:12-17
12 And I thank CHRIST JESUS our LORD who has enabled me, because HE counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, 13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our LORD was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in CHRIST JESUS. 15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that CHRIST JESUS came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. 16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first JESUS CHRIST might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on HIM for everlasting life. 17 Now to the KING eternal, immortal, invisible, to GOD who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. (NKJV)
I love this because it tell us that GOD will forgive you!!!!! Paul did ALOT of bad things but CHRIST still forgave him!!!!!!! GOD loves everyone, know does that mean that everyone will go to heaven? No! I wish they could but they wont. GOD will forgive you if you ask HIM. The only sin that HE will not forgive is the sin of blaspheme the HOLY SPIRIT.
Mark 3:29 – But he that shall blaspheme against the HOLY GHOST hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: (KJV)
