Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 1:6


1:6 From which - Love and a good conscience. Some are turned aside - An affectation of high and extensive knowledge sets a man at the greatest distance from faith, and all sense of divine things. To vain jangling - And of all vanities, none are more vain than dry, empty disputes on the things of God.

    Lucy gottlib, very well spoken. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17. We are all on this site for a reason, we all love the Lord . We are seeking for answers or just want to express ourselves to others in what we have learned, that is good. We must keep searching God until that day comes. We can only hope that people will find God. God bless you. ....

    Steve morrow you know why the law is not made for people of faith? Because the just live by faith. If the spirit of G-D is leading you he will never lead you into sin. That is why I believe a man can walk in perfection. If Jesus said, "be ye perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect." It must be possible...consider yourself dead but alive unto the L-RD!!!

    To AIM - God HAD to use Deborah - because there was no man to stand in the gap. The time of the judges was Israel's lowest - as far as 'men of God' were concerned. They were not to have judges - God was their judge. They were not to have a king (Saul, etc.). but they were God's chosen and He loved them, so He went along with them AT TIMES, but they paid for all their faithlessness. cont.

    To AIM - Jer. 35:19; Eze. 22:30; God is not unreasonable; we can reason with him. Deborah was chosen because there was no man to stand in the gap, but God's preference was for a man. Deborah was a PROPHETESS, like Anna of Luke. In Judges 4:6 Deborah rebukes Barak, the armies leader for not doing God's will. So God told her to go with him - if that was the only way He could get His will done.

    To Breeze - THANK-YOU so much for pointing out the scripture on pastors, bishops are to have one wife. I've known women weren't to usurp authority, but hadn't noticed this scripture. It makes it so OBVIOUS!!
    Pastors, etc. ".....are to have one WIFE;" not pastors, etc. are to have one HUSBAND. I can't thank you enough for knowing who Jesus is.
