God, not a result of works, so
that no one may boast.

unappeasable, slanderous, without
self-control, brutal, not loving
good, treacherous, reckless,

pleasure rather than lovers of
God, having the appearance of
godliness, but denying its power.
Avoid such people.

this or that.” As it is, you boast
in your arrogance. All such
boasting is evil.
