The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Final Orders to Timothy (6:2-16)
Final Orders to Timothy (6:2-16)

How quickly and completely credibility disappears when Christian leaders are found to have financial motives! The temptation of financial profit may characterize false teachers, but it also poses a threat to unwary believers, particularly if they are financially well-to-do and in positions of leadership. The dangers are probably even greater today. For one thing, large churches will pay well for those with outstanding gifts of ministry. How does this affect one's outlook on ministry and life?

In this epistle's closing section, which is very similar in tone and content to the opening section (1:3-20), Paul's final instructions concerning the errorists, the Christian leader and the wealthy of the community center on the matter of godliness and money and emphasize responsible Christian behavior.
