1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith by giving heed to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 through the pretensions of liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron,
3 who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
You are of your father the devil, and you want to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old self with its practices
and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.
Therefore, laying aside falsehood, each one of you must speak truth with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
