17 I URGE YOU, BROTHERS,
TO WATCH OUT FOR THOSE WHO CAUSE DIVISIONS
AND PUT OBSTACLES IN YOUR WAY
THAT ARE CONTRARY TO THE TEACHING YOU HAVE LEARNED.
KEEP AWAY FROM THEM.
18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ,
BUT THEIR OWN APPETITES.
BY SMOOTH TALK AND FLATTERY
THEY DECEIVE THE MINDS OF NAIVE PEOPLE.
19 EVERYONE HAS HEARD ABOUT YOUR OBEDIENCE,
SO I AM FULL OF JOY OVER YOU;
BUT I WANT YOU TO BE WISE ABOUT WHAT IS GOOD,
AND INNOCENT ABOUT WHAT IS EVIL.
20 THE GOD OF PEACE
WILL SOON CRUSH SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET.
Let us realize that only those who belong to Christ Jesus,
Will not be Crushed--Eternally Crushed.
Now is the Day of Salvation.
This World that is Passing Away,
That is Ruled by Satan, will be Crushed.
