1 Timothy 4

This Sunday I saw something new in this passage that I hadn't noticed before. I've probably read it a dozen or more times in my life, but as is typical of Gods Word, it takes on new meaning as the Holy Spirit works.

1 Timothy 4

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving



: 5For it is sanctified by the word of God (Genesis 9:3) and prayer. 6If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. 7But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. 8For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 9This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. 10For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 11These things command and teach.



12Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. 15Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 16Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
It states that in the last days people will command us to abstain from the eating of meat...veganism?

I find it not a bad idea to say away from red meat, in fact I have been eating egg plants quite a it lately which is a good substitute, I love ribs or a thick steak but too much of a anything is not good for you. So when I do grill something like steak I really appriciate the treat.

Yup , that is my point as well . And still in proverbs where it says gluttony is a sin so portion control would be the way to go . Myself , I like variety and so sometimes I don't eat meat and sometimes I do . right now I am into homemade . soups ....
