Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 2:14


2:14 And Adam was not deceived - The serpent deceived Eve: Eve did not deceive Adam, but persuaded him. Thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, #Gen 3:17|. The preceding verse showed why a woman should not usurp authority over the man. this shows why she ought not to teach. She is more easily deceived, and more easily deceives. The woman being deceived transgressed - The serpent deceived her, #Gen 3:13|, and she transgressed.

    "Comfort the feeble-minded, support the weak, warn the unruly..." Luke 13:23-29 the Lord declares plainly, as in MANY, MANY places; that not everyone who says to Him, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father." Not the hearers are justified, but the doers! God is not tricked by lip service! If any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of His.
