If someone teaches a doctrine,
That does not agree with sound words;
Has no godliness discipline,
And having not been good stewards.
 
They are puffed up with much conceit,
Knowing and understanding nothing;
As their words are full of deceit,
Controversy that it will bring.
 
Questions causing strife with envy,
Dissension evil suspicions;
As corrupted minds disagree,
Renders immoral ambitions.
 
Constant friction being depraved,
Among people deprived of truth;
Godliness a means to be saved,
Never to be rude or uncouth.
 
Godliness is feeling great gain,
We brought nothing to this world;
And we take nothing but the pain,
Into the ground where we are hurled.
 
But if we have clothing and food,
With these we will have contentment;
Which will give a good attitude,
And never having resentment.
 
But those with having desire,
To be rich fall to temptation;
Will be in a pit of fire,
Or in the lake of damnation.
 
Many foolish and hurtful lust,
Plunge people into destruction;
They are drowning in their distrust,
As a product of seduction.
 
The love of money is a root,
Of the many kinds of evil;
Enticing by delicious fruit,
From the luring of the devil.
 
This craving causes to wander.
From faith and piercing with sorrow;
No longer able to ponder,
What the fate will be tomorrow.
