ELEMENTARY THINGS ?
If we have put aside the elementary principles of the world-
See to it that no one take you captive
through philosophy and empty deception,
according to the tradition of men,
according to the elementary principles of the world,
rather than according to Christ.
And if we are now pressing on from the elementary teaching about the Christ-
Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ,
let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of
repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
of instruction about washings and laying on of hands,
and the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.
What are we to now teach?
