1 Timothy 3:14-4:5 (Epistle, Saturday Before)

14
These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly;
15
but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
1
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
2
speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,
3
forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
4
For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving;
5
for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
