Abandonment of Faith

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:1 - But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will [fn]fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:2 - by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:3 - who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:4 - For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:5 - for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:12 - Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, show yourself an example [fn]of those who believe.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:13 - Until I come, give your attention to the public [fn]reading, to exhortation, and teaching.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:14 - Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was granted to you through words of prophecy with the laying on of hands by the [fn]council of elders.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:15 - Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 4:16 - Pay close attention to yourself and to the teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
