A Message from Saint Paul to the Dissenters in the USD Theology Dept.

1 Timothy 6:2c-12

2Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful to them on the ground that they are members of the church;* rather they must serve them all the more, since those who benefit by their service are believers and beloved.*

Teach and urge these duties. 3Whoever teaches otherwise and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that is in accordance with godliness, 4is conceited, understanding nothing, and has a morbid craving for controversy and for disputes about words. From these come envy, dissension, slander, base suspicions, 5and wrangling among those who are depraved in mind and bereft of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.*
