Avoid Divisive Persons

17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those kwho cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and lavoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord 4Jesus Christ, but mtheir own belly, and nby smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For oyour obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be pwise in what is good, and 5simple concerning evil. 20 And qthe God of peace rwill crush Satan under your feet shortly.

sThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
