提摩太前书 1

1我保罗奉我们救主上帝和赐我们盼望的基督耶稣的命令,做基督耶稣的使徒, 写信给因信主而做我真儿子的提摩太。

愿父上帝和我们的主基督耶稣的恩典、怜悯和平安临到你!

谨防异端邪说

我去马其顿的时候,曾经劝你继续留在以弗所,好命令那几个人不要传讲异端邪说, 也不要沉迷于虚构的神话和冗长的家谱,因为这些事只会引起无用的猜测和辩论,无法帮助人凭信心认识上帝的救赎计划。 制止这些人的目的是为了爱,这爱来自于清洁的心、无亏的良心和真实无伪的信心。 可惜有些人却偏离这些,转向空洞的谈论。 他们想做律法教师,却不明白自己所谈论所主张的。

我们知道,只要用得合宜,律法本是好的。 因为律法并不是为义人设的,而是为了对付那些目无法纪、大逆不道、不敬畏上帝、犯罪作恶、不圣洁、贪恋世俗、谋杀父母、行凶害命、 10 淫乱、同性恋、拐卖人口、说谎、起假誓的人,以及其他违反正道的人。 11 这正道来自当受称颂的上帝托付我传扬的荣耀福音。

感谢上帝的怜悯

12 我感谢赐我力量的主基督耶稣,因为祂视我忠心可靠,派我事奉祂。 13 尽管我从前是个亵渎上帝、迫害和侮辱信徒的人,但我仍然蒙了怜悯,因为那时我无知,还没有信耶稣。 14 主赐给我丰富的恩典,使我在基督耶稣里有信心和爱心。

15 有句话千真万确、完全可信,就是“基督耶稣降世,为要拯救罪人。”在罪人中我是个罪魁, 16 但我依然蒙了怜悯,因为耶稣基督要在我这个罪魁身上彰显祂无限的忍耐,使我做那些要信靠祂并得到永生之人的榜样。

17 愿尊贵、荣耀归给那位不朽的、肉眼不能见的万世君王——独一无二的上帝,直到永远。阿们!

18 我儿提摩太啊,我依照从前有关你的预言,把这命令托付给你,好使你借此打美好的仗。 19 你要持守信心和无亏的良心。有些人丧掉良心,结果他们的信仰就像船触了礁, 20 其中有许米乃和亚历山大。我已经把他们交给撒旦,使他们受些教训,不敢再说亵渎的话。

1 Timothy 1

Misleadings in Doctrine and Living

1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the commandment of God our Savior, and of Christ Jesus, who is our hope,

To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

As I urged you [a]upon my departure for Macedonia, [b]remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, nor to [c]pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering [d]the administration of God which is by faith. But the goal of our [e]instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions.

But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers 10 [f]and [g]immoral men [h]and homosexuals [i]and kidnappers [j]and liars [k]and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted.

12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, 13 even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; 14 and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. 15 It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. 16 Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those [l]who would believe in Him for eternal life. 17 Now to the King [m]eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory [n]forever and ever. Amen.

18 This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my [o]son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you fight the good fight, 19 keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to [p]their faith. 20 [q]Among these are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan, so that they will be taught not to blaspheme.
