Colossians | 1 Thessalonians | 2 Thessalonians | 1 Timothy | 2 Timothy | Titus | Philemon | Hebrews


  1. "It pleased the Father ... having made peace through the blood of his cross." 1:19-20

  2. "The gospel ... was preached to every creature ... under heaven." 1:23

  3. "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy." 2:8

  4. "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord." 3:18

  5. "Servants [slaves], obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God." 3:22

  6. "Read the epistle from Laodicea." 4:16

    1 Thessalonians

  7. Paul, with his usual modesty, proclaims that he is holy, just, and blameless. 2:10

  8. He accuses the Jews of killing Jesus, persecuting the prophets, displeasing God, and being "contrary to all men." The wrath of God will "come upon them to the uttermost." 2:14-16

  9. Paul would have come to visit the Thessalonians but Satan stopped him. 2:18

  10. He expected Jesus to return within his lifetime and those of his followers. 2:19, 3:13, 4:15-17, 5:23

  11. "Every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour." 4:4

  12. "We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air." Christians get the idea of the rapture from this verse. 4:17

  13. "Prove all things; hold fast to what is good." 5:21

  14. "Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss." 5:26

    2 Thessalonians

  15. "Jesus ... in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God ... who shall be punished with everlasting destruction." 1:7-9

  16. "Be not soon shaken in mind ... by letter as from us."
    What letter is being referred to here? Is it 1 Thessalonians? If so, then should Christians not read it to avoid being "skaken in mind?" 2:2

  17. Jesus will "consume" the wicked "with the spirit of his mouth." 2:8

  18. Satan, not God, is all-powerful. 2:9

  19. "God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned." 2:11-12

  20. "God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation." 2:13

  21. Those who disagree with the views expressed in this epistle are to be shunned. 3:6, 14

  22. Those who will not or cannot work should starve to death. 3:10

    1 Timothy

  23. Ignore "fables and endless genealogies." (Like Gen.10, 1 Chr.1-9, Mt.1, and Lk.3?) 1:4

  24. Homosexuals are lawless, disobedient, unholy, and profane. 1:10

  25. "Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme." 1:20

  26. Women are to dress modestly, "with shamefacedness" -- "not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array." 2:9

  27. "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence." 2:11-12

  28. Men are superior to women since Adam was made before, and sinned after, Eve. But even though women are inferior to men, they shouldn't be discouraged because they shall "be saved in childbearing." 2:14-15

  29. "In the latter times some shall depart from the faith" by becoming vegetarians. 4:1-4

  30. "Bodily exercise profiteth little." 4:8

  31. Real widows are "desolate" and pray "night and day." But those widows that experience pleasure are "dead while [they] live." 5:5-6

  32. You should help a widow only if she : is over 60 years old, had only one husband, has raised children, has lodged strangers, has "washed the saints feet," has relieved the afflicted, and has "diligently followed very good work." Otherwise, let them starve. "But the younger widows refuse [to help]: for ... they will marry; having damnation." Besides the young widows are always idle tattlers -- "busybodies, spreading things which they ought not ... some are already turned aside after Satan." 5:9-15

  33. Publicly humiliate those who sin by announcing their sins in front of God and everybody so "that others may also fear." 5:20

  34. Stop drinking water. Drink wine for your "stomach's" sake. 5:23

  35. "Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed." 6:1

  36. "Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be ... ready to distribute." 6:17-18

  37. Avoid "science falsely so called" -- especially if it disagrees with the Bible. 6:20

    2 Timothy

  38. "If we deny him, he also will deny us." (Fair is fair!) 2:12

  39. The devil can take us captive any time he pleases. 2:26

  40. In the last days people will become evil, "without natural affection." Fundamentalist say that this refers to homosexuals. 3:1-3

  41. In the last days, "silly women" who are "ever learning" will be "led away with divers lusts." 3:6-7

  42. "All scripture is given by the inspiration of God." Even Judges 19:22-30 and Ezekiel 23:20? 3:16


  43. God, like George Washington (but unlike the author of Titus who falsely claims to be Paul), cannot tell a lie. 1:2

  44. Jews are unruly liars "whose mouths must be stopped." 1:10-11

  45. The people of Crete are "always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies." 1:12

  46. Disregard "Jewish fables and commandments of men, that turn from the truth." Like most of the Bible, maybe? 1:14

  47. "Teach the young women to be ... obedient to their own husbands." 2:4-5

  48. Slaves must obey their masters and "please them well in all things ... showing all good fidelity." 2:9-10

  49. "Avoid foolish ... genealogies." Like Gen.10, 1 Chr.1-9, and Lk.3? 3:9

  50. Heretics are to be rejected since they are subverted sinners who are condemned by God. 3:10-11


  51. "The bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother." 7


  52. The author of Hebrews believed that he was living in the "last days." 1:2, 9:26, 10.25, 10:37

  53. Every skeptic and nonbeliever has "an evil heart of unbelief." 3:12

  54. It is impossible for fallen-away Christians to be saved. (Didn't the author know about confession or the finality of being saved?) 6:4-6

  55. Apostates will burn in hell with the other non-believers. 6:8

  56. Melchisedec had no father or mother. He was never born (he just appeared ready-made by God) and he never died. He's still around somewhere. 7:3

  57. God will not forgive us unless we shed the blood of some innocent creature. 9:13-22

  58. Those who disobeyed the Old Testament law were killed without mercy. It will be much worse for those who displease Jesus. 10:28-29

  59. "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." 10:31

  60. Faith is believing without evidence things that you wish were true (but aren't). 11:1

  61. If you're not a Christian, it's impossible to please God. 11:6

  62. "By faith Noah ... condemned the world." 11:7

  63. "Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed." 11:11

  64. "Abraham ... offered up Isaac ... his only begotten son." (To the author of Hebrews this was a good thing.) 11:17

  65. Moses "kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them." 11:28

  66. "By faith the walls of Jericho fell down." 11:30

  67. "By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not." 11:31

  68. The heroes of faith: Samson, Jephthah, David, and Samuel. It would be hard to find a more monstrous group than these guys. 11:32

  69. "Others were tortured ... that they might obtain a better resurrection." 11:35

  70. God always hurts the ones he loves. If he doesn't hurt you, you're a bastard, not a son. 12:6-8

  71. God ordered animals to be "stoned, or thrust through with a dart" if they "so much as ... touch the mountain." 12:20

  72. Avoid "strange doctrines." Those who do so will avoid nearly everything in the Bible. 13:9

  73. "Our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you."
    The author of Hebrews never claims to be (and wasn't) Paul, but he wants people to think that he was. And it worked. That's why Hebrews is in the Bible. 13:23
