1 Timothy 4:3-5 Forbidding marriage and commanding to abstain from certain meats and food, which God created to be received as thanksgiving by all that believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.
Paul shows that it’s not the teacher that we should be impressed with or his or her credentials. What we need to pay attention to is the message and does it align with the work God has ordained through his son Jesus Christ here on earth. The verse outlines the importance bring our decisions before God. We all want to live a sanctified life. Our thoughts, deeds, and actions are sanctified through prayer and reading and acting upon scripture.
