As I urged you when I went into Macedonia—remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. (I Timothy 1:3, 4 NKJV)
The key to knowledge for man. Any man who has the privilege to teach the people of God must with all carefulness avoid corrupting the written truth of life as laid out in scripture. Such men must ensure that their teachings do not generate or foster understanding contrary to that intended by scripture.
They shouldn’t venture into any philosophical value mining of man-made stories told in order to explain life or certain aspects of it. Any need for answers to anything should be satisfied by the bible. Let these teachers and preachers get busy and search the scriptures so they can equip God’s children for life.
Let these teachers know that no good can come from tracing generations and lineages that never come to an origin. Natural descent cannot reveal anything final about anyone nor Christ himself since it cannot lead us to their life-source.
Such practices only create a sense of uncertainty in the hearts of men and unending series of questions that only take people farther and farther from walking in faith. They kill your faith and take away your right to live. It’s the same earth old deception that manifested in the garden of Eden.
The only way you can develop into a super-human, a god-man, an incarnation of Christ on earth is by faith. Faith in the un corrupted, properly understood and rightly practiced teachings of the bible.
O LORD COME SOON.
