They are a dime a dozen. They would rather wallow in their unbelief and glory in the fact that one day they will enter hell, than trust that Christ died for their sins, was buried and rose again for their justification.
One gets two varieties of gainsayers, the unsaved variety and the saved (heretical) variety who straddles both Pauline and Hebrew doctrine and is clothed in political correctness.
Gainsayer. Noun. (plural gainsayers) One who contradicts or denies what is alleged; an opposer. A person who gainsays others; a disagreeable person.
2 Timothy 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
Repentance : A change of mind – change one’s mind from unbelief to belief, in this case it would be repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.
If those that lead and instruct us in Pauline truth aren’t important – why did the Apostle Paul write the Pastoral epistles of Timothy and Titus?
Anyone who thinks that Leaders and Instructors aren’t important are total nincompoops, who will one day try and tell God why they are special and need to be at the top of the pecking order in heaven, instead they’ll get their tail feathers set alight……. for being total and utter…… nincompoops…… who are destitute of reason or common powers of understanding.
Unfortunately, there is no other way of describing them.
