From which” is speaking of the words of verse 4 which included “love from a pure heart,” “a good conscience,” and “sincere faith.” It is these “from which some” have strayed.

To Timothy, a true son in the faith:
Grace
, mercy, and peace from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Timothy 1:2

Paul, after having identified himself and his commission, now identifies the main recipient of the letter, Timothy. As noted, based on the apostolic identification of himself, something Timothy was perfectly aware of, the letter was certainly intended to be for more than just Timothy though.Read the rest
