"But as for you, continue in what
you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those
from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy
Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith
in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for
teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that
the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
2 Timothy 3: 14-17
