“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:12 All that are resolved to live godly - Therefore count the cost. Art thou resolved? In Christ - Out of Christ there is no godliness. Shall suffer persecution - More or less. There is no exception. Either the truth of scripture fails, or those that think they are religious, and are not persecuted, in some shape or other, on that very account, deceive themselves.
2Ti 3:12 And all indeed that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. In that age persecution was inseparable from a devoted Christian life. The same has been true, to a certain extent, in all ages. If the church was less worldly it would be more persecuted.
Yea, and all that will liue godly in Christ Iesus, shall suffer persecution.
