  • BoIT04 on 1 Timothy 5:23
    Reading with the setting and the circumstances that Timothy was in in mind we realize that the prescription was for Timothy to drink in little amount,and little concentration,the alcohol. It was during this time that the water was contaminated so Paul advised him to let go of the legalism of maintaining purity from alcohol and instead take a little for his health. But if this was a private prescription to Timothy,why include it in the Bible which clearly can never be described as a 'Private n Confidential ' diary? For the sole reason that we should learn from its core teaching legalism to the Scriptures does not bind in a way that the life of man is threatened. Simple!
