• Two imperatives
    • This know
    • This do
  • If 2 Tim 3 was true in Paul’s day, how much more ours?
  • Vv.2-5 are very specific
    • These are not just descriptive of an age, but of a powerless tolerance which begins to govern the church.
    • We must not be self-promoters.
  • What’s normal now is not normal.
  • What people need is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • The test is not ”tolerance," but doctrine.
  • In response to those who would embrace these behaviors: "from such turn away."
  • The Gospel (and only the Gospel) has life transforming power.
