    Verse 1~If we must offer correction to an older man or woman we want to do so with respect as we would to our parents.
  • Ivan
    Jim Excellent advise. I believe contrary to modern opinion that God does want us out of debt so we can more abundantly support the coming revival upon our earth before the Second coming of Christ. Many believers today think that if they have an expensive car or house they are blessed. Unfortunately they don't tell you their monthly payments. Debt is not a blessing.

    Verse 17: Elders who are taking the lead in the congregation in a righteous way and are hard working are worthy of special honor and respect.
  • Eutychus
    "The younger as sisters, WITH ALL PURITY." We should work to insure purity in all members of the Church. A watchful eye on putting married folks and young men and women together in tempting circumstances. Let us not lay traps before our brothers and sisters. Remember, "But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, AND MAKE NOT PROVISION FOR THE FLESH, to fulfil the lusts thereof". Romans13:14. Be careful.

    Vs 8: Thankful to God for helping us become debt free a few years ago. Providing for our family is so important. We also have found that without debt, God has blessed financially even more! My wife and I have also found a balance in giving more (1 Cor 16:1-2), enjoying more (Eccl 5:18), preparing for emergencies to avoid debt (Prov 21:20). Thank you LORD!

    1 Timothy 5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. The Word of God is Jesus and there for the Holy Spirit will guide us in truth for speaking the Word. We must not stop the Word.
  • Brianna
    Vs. 1-2

    A functioning congregation is like a family. The young ones can look to the older ones as mother, fathers, perhaps even grandparents. In many churches there is a perversion, viewing each other as sex objects. We need to view each other with purity. Any romantic feelings that may exist in the congregation should be between two mature Christians with pure intentions.
  • John
    Dear Timothy. I am truly sorry to hear about your misfortune. I pray that you are able to gather yourself together and stay strong in faith to our Lord Christ. May God bless you!
  • Bill Duckworth for verse 23
    We must not be a drunkard. That 's bible. But God, in His infinite wisdom , peppers his Holy Word with health recommendations. Here, He does also.
  • David Petrush for verse 8
    Reply to Kristyn Evans: Kristyn, I don 't know if what i am writing here is still relevant to your situation, for the fact that your comment was written in 2013 and now it is 2015. But still I will write. Remember what THE LORD says concerning marriage, "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore GOD has joined together, let no man split apart. " So you and your husband are now one single flesh. Let us compare that to a single unmarried person. An unmarried person is one flesh with themselves, therefore if they have a problem they cannot simply divorce it, but they must work it out, sacrifice, and and do whatever good thing needs to be done to fix it in their single body. Therefore compared to a married couple, their singular emotions and perspectives, and thoughts are no longer preserved to their singular mind and heart only, but also to their spouse 's for they are now one flesh . Then the same as the single unmarried person worked out the problem in their single body, the married must in one body and mind, through GOD, work out whatever problem they are having. Not cast it aside in divorcement, save for the cause of fornication.

    Paul is writing to Timothy, his son in the faith. Check Paul 's letter to the Romans chapter 14.17-23. This matter of drinking wine, and diet, is clearly allied with faith, as "the just shall live by faith "....we live by the faith of the son of God, not by the written commandments of the Torah when we trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ the gospel .
  • It is strange that the verse about wine is interjected in the middle of a whole different discussion. He speaks of spiritual matters, stops and quotes the wine verse, then continues speaking about spiritual matters. Doesn 't make any sense. It must mean something spiritual.
  • Sunshine for verse 8
    I think if a man don 't provide for his family it represents who he is if he eat,sleep,and,enjoy life so should his family he has chosen
  • Antonio for verse 8
    this verse means you help your household first wife kids yourself before you can help relatives.uncle auntie mom dad bro sister.your marriage is first,god then wife husband and yourself and kid
  • G . Taylou
    With ref to verse eight. It speakes about if any provide not for HIS own house, he hath denied the faith and that man is worse than an infidel. My question is, supose the person is a woman because the man is unablle to work, can one say that the woman denied the faith?
  • Myra
    I wish I could have done this a year ago. It 's a blessing.
  • Joni G
    Fern, three score represents 60. Score means 20. Widows may remarry but advised to marry a Christian. Then you both can focus on Christ. My grandmother never remarried and was widowed at age 55. She devoted the rest of her life to Christ and good works.
  • Fern herbert
    I didn 't understand the widows role as a christian.would it be wrong for her to marry again? What did the threescore years represent?
  • Timothy
    Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach 's sake and thine often infirmities?
  • C.Smith for verse 23
    But use a little wine for thy stomach sake, it 's clear to me, without any side effect. Amen!
  • Diyo Alex for verse 23
    A Christians we are not to encourage drunkedness and over consumption of alcohol or the use of alcohol for as an escapism from the stress of life.Our complete dependance must be on the Lord Jesus Christ...the worldly life uses alcohol for recreational purposes but we are encouraged to use a little wine for health reasons...hence not a lot for other reasons but for health sake...In context of the word G d encourages healthy living...as a drunkard will not enter the Kingdom of G d as the scriptures point out. Wine for Health! Amen.

    1Tim5 20 acertain pastor rebuked asister who wanted to entice him into asin and the sister ran out ov the church and idon 't know whether she 's still in salvation or not.
  • Zamia for verse 23
    Wine is also another term for grape juice. Juice helps with illnesses such as hypoglycemia which causes one to pass out. I just had The Lord speak to me this scripture and I didn 't understand it at the time because I don 't drink anymore but I just received a diagnosis of hypoglycemia and I now understand what He was trying to say. Juice is what helps an episode of low blood sugar. I 've only been drinking water for a really long time. This scripture is correct if you think of the context.
  • Willie J. for verse 8
    Many unbelievers provides for their family too.So to say that only we believers provides for our family. And it is not just in the Christian community.
  • Jonathan
    If there has been any topic i love, it has always been matters to do with health reform. When Paul talks of "wine " he is simply refering to fresh juice. note that the Bible doesnt record juice anywhere from Genesis to Revelation and i tend to think that it 's because the word wine was used to mean juice. God made man upright but due to sin and many mischievous adventures, we invented fermentation for our alcoholic productions. see the following exerpt "Juicing your fruits and vegetables has long been thought to have healing powers. Providing an abundance of quickly absorbed nutrients, juicing has been touted to help cure everything from stomach ulcers to strengthening the immune system due to the high concentration of phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals in fresh fruits and vegetables. For healing or detoxification purposes begin to change your diet by eliminating processed, over cooked food. Eat whole organic fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds, and eat a mostly vegetarian based diet including fresh juice at least 1 2 times per day "
  • RichE for verse 23
    Some of you speak as if you have authority on this subject, you do not. The Bible absolutely permits you to drink wine. Jesus said "Drink of this cup, Some of you speak as if you have authority on this subject, you do not. The Bible absolutely permits you to drink wine. Jesus said "Drink of this cup, For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. The old covenant was water. That was the miracle changing water into wine. Sin is everywhere and its not an action but a spirit. Do we not know that being a Christian is not just a lifestyle, its a spiritual war? Drinking of the wine is to find sin in and around us. John 1 5, For the light shine through the darkness and the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. All of you please ask the Lord about this. Pray the Lords prayer
