Discussion for 2 Timothy 4

  • A disciple
    "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;" We should be glad for every opportunity to communicate the grace and knowledge which the Lord has given us; but we understand too that men are free to choose their own way instead of the way of the Spirit if they really want to. If they did so to the Lord "in the green tree" what should we expect from those kind now "in the dry?"

    2 Timothy 4:6-7 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. This must of been Paul's last Epistles knowing he was going to be put to death. That man kept the faith all the way through his life with Jesus. Praise the Lord.
  • A disciple
    Jesus preached about Hell, and Gehenna, and Damnation of the wicked, and the worm that never dies, and wailing and gnashing of teeth, and about a certain rich man who ended up "Tormented in this flame." "But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him." "..except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
  • A disciple
    Steve; EXCELLENT SCRIPTURES, as usual! "WE ARE OF GOD HE THAT KNOWETH GOD HEARETH US; HE THAT IS NOT OF GOD HEARETH NOT US: HEREBY KNOW WE THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH AND THE SPIRIT OF ERROR." When we abide in Jesus, and His Words abide in us, we shall ask what we will and it shall be done unto us: herein is the Father glorified, that we bear much fruit. The good fruit can only come from the good tree!
  • Lu2677
    For the time will come when they will not hold fast to Christ's doctrine, because they covet and gather to themselves many teachers that are "soothsayers", because they have hearts that only want to hear what makes them feel good/special, proud, accomplished, important, safe, puffed up. I worked with a woman who said "When they start preaching about hell, I walk out."

    2 TIMOTHY 4:3 FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS HAVING ITCHING EARS
