Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 4:1 - In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge:

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 4:3 - For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 4:5 - But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Personal Remarks

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 4:9 - Do your best to come to me quickly,

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 4:15 - You too should be on your guard against him, because he strongly opposed our message.
