Paul is reminding Timothy that he should face his share of suffering as a soldier of Jesus and not fear it. He doesn't want Timothy to go the way of some of his other followers who have started to spread a bad version of the original message, and undermining people's faith.

Christians are not to engage in heated disputes and should correct opponents with gentleness while hoping that God will grant them repentance and they'll come to their senses. To be fair, most Christians who've commented here have followed this I think, just a minority who don't.

The people that should be avoided in the last days are the ones that commit the usual range of sins while maintaining an outward appearance of true religion, I think everyone knows people like that...

Paul says that every scripture is inspired by God, and their study will lead to wisdom for salvation and righteousness.

Paul talks about a few people who've abandoned him and done him harm, and asks that when Timothy comes to see him could he bring the cloak Paul left with someone and some scrolls as well, not sure why lines like that are kept in the bible but the banality of it amused me.
