Paul talks to Timothy about the perils of Christianity. He begins, in chapter 4, talking about seducing spirits, devils. He said some will fall away from the faith and listen and follow doctrines of devils. When Jesus was tempted, the devil spoke 1/2 truths to Him. It sounded good, but it wasn’t true. The doctrines of devils will led you to hell. God created all things for good. He wanted us to recieve all the good things with thanksgiving in our hearts. The only way we will know the truth is by the word of God. Paul said bodily excercise profits little. But godliness is the goal. He exhorted Timothy that he walked in faith and godliness and don’t let anyone despise his youth. Paul said do all these things to the saving of yourself and all that hear you.
