Holding The Faith

As I exhorted thee to tarry at Ephesus, when I was going into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge certain mess not to teach a different doctrine, neither to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questionings, rather than a dispensation of God which is in faith: SO DO I NOW. But the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and faith unfeigned from which things some having swerved have turned aside unto vain talking; desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor whereof they confidently affirm...holding faith and a good conscience; which some having thrust from them made shipwreck concerning the faith: of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I delivered unto Satan, that they may be taught not to blaspheme.

I Tim. 1:3-7. 19. 20.

And even as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses. so do these also withstand the truth; men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further for their Cony shall be evident unto all men, as theirs also came to be.

2 Tim. 3:8,9.

This testimony is true. For which cause reprove them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men who turn away from the truth.

Tit. 1:13,14.

A factious man after a first and second admonition; refuse; knowing that such a one is perverted, and sinneth being self condemned.

Tit. 3:10,11.

O Timothy, guard that which is committed unto thee, turning away from the profane babblings and oppositions of the knowledge which is falsely so called; which some professing have erred from the faith.

1 Tim. 6:20-21.
