The bottom line

As I besought you to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that you might charge some that they teach no other doctrine, Neither give heed to myths and endless genealogies, which cause questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. Now the end of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain talk; Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor the things they affirm. 1 Tim. 1:3-7

Don’t teach any other teaching than what Paul taught. He says teach no other doctrine.

Anything else will not build up and will not produce the result God requires, which is love out of a pure heart, and out of a good conscience, and a faith without pretense – in other words – Christ-likeness.

If it doesn’t cause you to become like Jesus in your character, to have His love from a pure heart and clean conscience, then of what good is it? It’s just a waste of time, at best.
