Quotable
 

The whole point is this: evil has a short shelf-life. . . . In the end, God wins!


— Charles R. Swindoll 

 

Paul concluded the first half of 2 Timothy ringing a spiritual liberty bell.
When godly leaders “gently instruct those who oppose the truth,” they may repent (2 Timothy 2:25).
And if they do, “God will change those people’s hearts” (2:25) and
free them from “the devil’s trap” (2:26).
Their chains will fall off, their eyes will be opened, and they will follow the light of Christ.

Paul opens the second half of 2 Timothy tolling a warning bell.
Although some who oppose the truth will turn to Christ, many will
not repent.
The devil’s bonds will not be broken but will hold fast.
These people will enslave themselves to their own desires and sink deeper into a pit of sin—turning
against Christ and His church.

Paul’s description of a future steeped in evil is realistic and raw.
He removes our blinders and shows the destructive impact of sin.
Why would Paul put depravity on parade?
He must have reasons . . . and he does.
