2 Timothy 3
FAUX CHRISTIANS & HERETICAL CHRISTIANS:
3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.
IN CONTRAST TO THE ABOVE – REAL CHRISTIANS:
10 BUT thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
THE REASON WHY THE APOSTLE PAUL CALLS IT PERILOUS TIMES:
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
Once they turn on you, they start persecuting you. The very ones who accuse you of being judgmental, refuse to see their very own judgment of you, the only difference is that they judge you according to your behaviour, whereas you judge them according to their doctrine.
That says it all.
If you read this blog with a thin skin, being politicially correct and steeped in denominationalism, yes, then you’re going to have a huge problem.
Paul called them what?
If he were on some Fakebook forums and on some friends’ lists – they would’ve labeled him unloving, judgmental, crass – you name it. “Where’s the grace and peace” in calling people traitors……..
We have too many tin lizzy, simple-minded so-called Christians out there who are steeped in New Age dung, and couldn’t be SOLDIERS even if they tried. More like they are blue beret UN “soldiers” who are deployed to “keep the peace” and accomplish absolutely nothing – zero – zilch – nada.
Paul talks about his charity, and at the same time calls those who turned on him TRAITORS, HIGHMINDED, LOVERS OF THEMSELVES – read it and be a soldier, not a sissy.
I’m thinking that if one had to call anyone a traitor on a M.A.D group on Facebook you would get banned for calling people names……. because they think traitors are people who turn against their own country – they look at it in a fleshly sense, or a…………. wait for it……… spiritual sense, as in “I’m spiritual”.
