|1 Timothy 2:10|
10 But rather, with what becomes women professing godliness, with good works.
|1 Timothy 4:7-8|
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.
|1 Timothy 3:16|
16 Without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness. God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached in the Gentiles, believed on in the world, and received up into glory.
|2 Peter 1:5-7|
5 For this very reason, make every effort [the maximum possible],2 to add to your faith, virtue [excellence]; and to virtue knowledge; [How do you add to your faith? You sit and wait on God, listening, watching, and then obeying. His spoken words heard impart the life of God into your heart, John 6:63. You grow in faith with each revelation received. By the grace of His revelations Jesus authors your faith and increases your faith in the progression of these verses. From the Word of the Lord within: "I must warn you — you must make every effort to add to your faith and enter the rest."]
6 And to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance [or patience]; and to perseverance, godliness;
7 And to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.3
|2 Timothy 3:5|
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it. Turn away from such people.1 [Their religion has a semblance or form of godliness, but without any power. They deny the power of God to cleanse them, purify them, and make them holy; therefore they have the hope of the hypocrite: to enter heaven, having died in their sins. From the Word of the Lord within: "There is no hope for anyone outside the power of God."]
|2 Peter 1:3|
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;
|1 Timothy 2:2 |
2 For kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and gravity.
