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.

Knijga O Kristu

Prva poslanica Timoteju 1

Timoteju, mojemu pravom sinu u vjeri.Neka ti Bog Otac i naš Gospodin Isus Krist podare milost, milosrđe i mir.

Upozorenje na lažne učitelje

Kao što sam te zamolio kad sam odlazio u Makedoniju, ostani u Efezu da zapovjediš onima koji šire pogrešno učenje da to prestanu činiti.

Neka ne trate vrijeme na beskonačna nagađanja o mitovima i rodoslovljima. To više pogoduje prepirkama nego služenju Bogu u vjeri.

Zapovijedam to zato da svi budete puni ljubavi, što dolazi iz čista srca, čiste savjesti i neprijetvorne vjere.

Ali neki su učitelji zastranili i skrenuli u prazno naklapanje.

Htjeli bi biti učitelji Zakona, a ne razumiju ni ono što sami govore i što uporno tvrde.

Znamo da je Zakon dobar kad se njime služi onako kako je to Bog odredio.

Ali Bog ga nije dao zbog ljudi koji čine što je pravedno; on je za zločince i buntovnike, za bezbožnike i grešnike, koji nisu sveti, već svjetovni, za ubojice - čak i vlastitih roditelja,

10 za bludnike, homoseksualce, otmičare, varalice, lašce i sve koji čine što se protivi zdravome učenju

11 slavne Radosne vijesti blaženoga Boga, koji ju je meni povjerio.

Pavlova zahvalnost za Božje milosrđe

12 Silno sam zahvalan našemu Gospodinu Kristu Isusu, koji mi je dao snagu, što me smatrao dostojnim povjerenja i što me je postavio da mu služim

13 iako sam prije bio hulitelj Boga, progonitelj i nasilnik.

14 Kako je milostiv bio naš Gospodin! Posve me ispunio vjerom i ljubavlju u Kristu Isusu.

15 Ova je riječ vjerodostojna i zaslužuje da se prihvati: Krist Isus došao je na svijet spasiti grešnike - a od njih sam najgori bio ja.

16 Bog mi se smilovao da budem primjer kako Krist Isus ima strpljenja i s najgorim grešnicima. Tako će i ostali shvatiti da i oni mogu povjerovati u njega i imati vječni život.

17 Neka je slava i čast Bogu u vijeke vjekova. On je vječni, nevidljivi i besmrtni Kralj; jedini Bog. Amen.

Timotejeva odgovornost

18 Timoteju, sine, stavljam ti na srce zapovijed da se držiš prijašnjih proročanstava koja se odnose na tebe i da se, ravnajući se prema njima, dobro boriš.

19 Čuvaj svoju vjeru u Krista i čistu savjest. Neki su ju okaljali pa su doživjeli brodolom vjere.

20 Među njima su Himenej i Aleksandar. Morao sam ih predati Sotoni da nauče ne huliti Boga.
