1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

Keeping The Words Of This Book

One of my friend in Facebook, Solomon Seal Samuel from Nigeria, asked me this question. How would you justify your belief in God?

To understand it better, let's use parallelism to show that this example has the same level of importance.

Basically the wife hated mostly the drinking, smoking and gambling vices of their husband.

If the husband stop drinking & gambling but continue smoking, can he justify his belief that he's in love?

James 2:10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

James 3: 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

Blessed is he who keeps the words of this prophecy.

Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

This is how I justify my belief.
