Proclaiming Godliness but Denying Its Power

Paul listed the signs of unspiritual Christians who would bring on perilous times (2 Timothy 3:1-4), adding that such Christians hold a form of godliness, but they do not see the power of it (2 Timothy 3:5). He pictured them further, saying, “For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:6-7).
Paul said that from such people, we should turn away (v. 5). Now you know. Watch your own behavior and watch the behavior of others, and be sure to grow as a Christian.
