1 Timothy 1:4





4 Neither [mede] give heed [prosecho] to fables [muthos] and [kai] endless [aperantos] genealogies, [genealogia] which [hostis] minister [parecho] questions, [zetesis] rather [mallon] than [e] godly [theos] edifying [oikodomia] which [ho] is in [en] faith: [pistis] so do. KJV-Interlinear



4 nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith. NASB



The false teachers, the deceivers, those who will try to confuse and misdirect your life are in error themselves. Their goal is to get you to see things their way. This is a competition to them and nothing more than ego driven rhetoric to win the argument. Their motive is to prevent you from traveling your own course, which is different from theirs. And the effect of their whole agenda is loss to you, if you yield to them.


Satan is the father of lies.Satans policy of evil, is the pattern of lies, intertwined in a complex web of ambiguity and confusion or subtle appeals to the emotions, wherein he can fabricate almost any argument of out of nothing. His goal? To get you to quit your position in truth.


The lies of the world have but one objective, which is to make you lose.


And so Paul teaches us here, that the deceivers, the false prophets of the world will fabricate false arguments, of which their objective is to argue. They are not interested in truth, but in confusion and debate.


You have probably already been confronted by so called atheists, secularists, or those of other religions, who want to debate.But in truth there is no debate, there is nothing to prove. Truth is simply truth.Only in lies is there a need to debate in order to give the lies some sort of respectability.


Endless myths, are simply that, fabricated arguments, fabricated statistics, invented facts, things that are intended to provoke confrontation. They are arguments which describe the bad things of the world, and attempt to prove that God is therefore bad, because people or circumstances are bad.They are a projection of bad things onto God.


Endless genealogies, is a list of names of ancestors, but it is also lists in general of causes and reactions.These lists do not exist and cannot be proven, nor do they carry any weight in truth.


For, the records of the lines of humanity were effectively shut down when Christ was born. This cancels religious attempts to destroy Christianity by creating lineage after the time of Christ. No sons or daughters of Jesus. No lineage for other religions such as Islam, to justify themselves.No lineage to create a super or elite class of people.


In other words, all arguments of false teaching are an attempt to give man credit for his own efforts, thus cancelling out the work of Christ as the basis for salvation.


There are only two categories into which all theology or philosophies fit. The first is salvation by faith through the work of Christ. And the second category which includes atheists, is salvation or a better view of life, by means of mans cognizance or effort.


Today, we know more about the makeup of this universe, than ever before. We are still learning, and even those who are actively engaged in the science of discovery, do not have all of the answers.And yet, you will come into contact with those who are not scientists, who are not graduates with degrees, who are not actively participating in some science, but who seem to have all of the answers, even of life beyond this one.


Their courage comes from behind a keyboard, hidden behind an internet, and armed with arguments that have no means of proof or verification. But they are impressed with their own arguments and presume that you are impressed with their words as well.


Their intent is not to provide you with a better life, but only to defeat you in the argument. In either case they lose, and they could care less about what the outcome is for your life.


Christianity does not try to destroy.Christianity does not seek out argument for arguments sake. Christianity cares a great deal about your future, for when you win, then everyone is better off.


Christianity has but one objective, to build you up to a point of completion and total success. Paul calls this edifying, oikodomia, which means to build, to complete, a building, a dwelling, a home that is fully ready to live within.


The purpose of Christianity is not to promote the instructor, not to allow an instructor restrictive control over those who he teaches, not to entertain, not to promote life through emotion only, but to promote growth through substance.


You have to eat, if you are to grow and remain healthy.


If you sing and say the right things only to exercise your emotions, recite endless clich s or slang in order to create an identity for yourself, that is no different than standing outside of a great restaurant and smelling the aroma only. You cannot live on the smells only.


Your life depends on the construction and completion of your soul, and that requires material, real building material, which is Bible doctrine.


Myths and endless lists may be impressive, but they are in fact, nothing.
