1 Timothy 6:3-5

These are the things you are to teach and insist on. If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

One response to “1 Timothy 6:3-5

  1. Godliness, or ministry, as a means to financial gain. I think that lots of people fall into this category and they enjoy the job, the security, and the exposure, without having a heart to serve God’s people.

    Having an unhealthy interest in controversy and quarrel. Rather than trying to find truth, and to exhort, we try to win arguments and show our intellect and skill. We use the Word as a vehicle for our own advancement.
