5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
FROM SUCH TURN AWAY.
The Apostle Paul’s words, right?
You profess to follow him, don’t you?
Do you question how loving he was in saying that?
And no, “but, but, but…” just won’t do.
The Apostle Paul was a soldier, not a sissy boy living in the 4th dimension. He had both feet firmly on the ground.
The only thing you seem to be good at is turning away from people who speak the truth because they’re in the minority, because you like the FEELING of belonging, after all, “how can so many people be wrong?”
Question : How many friends did the Apostle Paul have at the end of his life? Did he have thousands of followers? Did he shy away from “telling it as it is”? Was he loving for the sake of peace and unity?
If you’re a Mid-Acts Pauline Dispensationalist you have a high calling, and being pathetic is not part of that calling.
Think about it.
We do not uphold people/sinners above God and His doctrine.
You are a debtor – what do you owe people?
The preaching of the gospel in order that they might be saved.
