|1 Timothy 4:7-8,6:3|
7 But reject profane [godless] myths and old wives' tales [legends], and rather exert yourself to godliness.
8 For physical discipline profits little, but godliness is profitable for all things, because it holds promise for the present life, and also for the life to come.
3 If any man teaches otherwise and does not consent to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine that is according to godliness,

|2 Peter 1:2-4,3:10-11 |
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, [The knowledge of God is only obtained through revelation; you can memorize the entire Bible and be with little to no knowledge of God. By revelation God will open the hidden meanings and mysteries of the scriptures if you seek Him by waiting on Him in humble silence, as you listen and watch.]
3 As his divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who has called us to glory and virtue;
4 By which exceedingly great and precious promises are given to us, that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.1
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.2 [On the day of the Lord, the appearance of Jesus, the world passes away and disappears, along with its lusts and desires, 1 John 2:7, you remain on the earth, but your sight and consciousness is in heaven, as you are translated into the Kingdom Heaven; those upon whom the ends of the world have come. 1 Cor 10:11]
11 Since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons should you be in all holy conduct and godliness,
