Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 3:5

3:5 Having a form - An appearance of godliness, but not regarding, nay, even denying and blaspheming, the inward power and reality of it. Is not this eminently fulfilled at this day?


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 3:5

2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness. This implies that the persons described professed to be religious, worshipers of God in outward form. A godless church is described. But denying the power thereof. Rejecting its power. Their lives are not molded by it. From such turn away. This implies that some of this formal, godless religion had begun to show itself even at that time.

Outwardly religious,but inwardly satanic, they call God Lord but they don't live in submission to his lordship over their life.They claim to preach the truth but in real sense hate and reject the truth.
