Put Your Name There

2 Timothy 3:1-5

[Lovers of their own selves] Selfish, studious of their own interest, and regardless of the welfare of all mankind.

[Covetous] Lovers of money, because of the influence which riches can procure.

[Boasters] Vainglorious: self-assuming; valuing themselves beyond all others.

[Proud] Airy, light, trifling persons; those who love to make a show-who are all outside; from above, and to show.

[Blasphemers] Those who speak impiously of God and sacred things, and injuriously of men,

[Disobedient to parents] Head-strong children, whom their parents cannot persuade.

[Unthankful] Persons without grace, or gracefulness; who think they have a right to the services of all men, yet feel no obligation, and consequently no gratitude.

[Unholy] Without holiness, having no heart or reverence for God.

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

[Without natural affection] Without that affection which parents bear to their young, and which the young bear to their parents. An affection which is common to every class of animals; consequently, men without it are worse than brutes.

[Truce-breakers] Those who are bound by no promise, held by no engagement, obliged by no oath; persons who readily promise anything, because they never intend to perform.

[False accusers] Diaboloi Devils; but properly enough rendered false accusers, for this is a principal work of the Devil. Slanderers; striving ever to ruin the characters of others.

[Incontinent] Those who, having sinned away their power of self-government, want strength to govern their appetites; especially those who are slaves to uncleanness.

[Fierce] Wild, reckless, whatever is contrary to pliability and gentleness.

[Despisers of those that are good] Not lovers of good men. Here is a remarkable advantage of the Greek over the English tongue, one word of the former expressing five or six of the latter. Those who do not love the good must be radically bad themselves.

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

[Traitors] Those who deliver up to an enemy the person who has put his life in their hands; such as the Scots of 1648, who delivered up into the hands of his enemies their unfortunate countryman and king, Charles the First; a stain which no lapse of ages can wipe out.

[Heady] headstrong, precipitate, rash, inconsiderate.

[High-minded] Those who are full of themselves, and empty of all good.

[Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God] Lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; i.e. pleasure, sensual gratification, is their god; and this they love and serve; God they do not.

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

signifies a draught, sketch, or summary, and will apply well to those who have all their religion in their creed, confession of faith, catechism, bodies of divinity, etc., while destitute of the life of God in their souls; and are not only destitute of this life, but deny that such life or power is here to be experienced or known. They have religion in their creed, but none in their hearts. And perhaps to their summary they add a decent round of religious observances. From such turn away-not only do not imitate them, but have no kind of fellowship with them; they are a dangerous people, and but seldom suspected, because their outside in fair.
