2 Peter 2:10
10 But [de] chiefly [malista] them that walk [poreuomai]
after [opiso] the flesh [sarx] in [en] the lust [epithumia] of uncleanness [miasmos],
and [kai] despise [kataphroneo] government [kuriotes].
Presumptuous [tolmetes] are they, selfwilled [authades], they are not [ou] afraid [tremo] to speak evil [blasphemeo]
of dignities [doxa]. KJV-Interlinear
10 and especially those who
indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority. Daring,
self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties, NASB
Among those who are
disobedient toward God and truth, are the arrogant.
All sin finds its
foundation is arrogance, but there are those who are extremely indignant toward
anyone or anything that is successful in life, toward anyone of anything that
possesses any form of authority, and especially against anyone or anything that
possesses more than they, whatever that more might be.
Indulgent in the
corrupt desires, is not limited to the lasciviousness's of this world, but to refers
to anything that sits in opposition toward God, Christ, doctrine or the
spiritual life.This includes all
categories of sin and human good.
When the lightning of
justice does not strike immediately, then people in opposition toward Christianity,
grow confident in their opposition toward God and everything that Christianity
stands for.They oppose Christian principles,
tradition, and especially everything that smacks of Christ.
Even believers who are
growing up, and especially spiritually young believers, can adopt bizarre beliefs
that have no substance within them. They are easily snared by some popular
belief, only because it is popular, or perhaps because they were brought up
believing in it.
The only defense
against adoption of false concepts, is the continued daily study with an open mind
and willingness and desire to learn what God has to teach.
Of the many first
things you learn in Christianity, is that if you wish to learn, then you must
develop a genuine desire to want to learn. With a desire, then you follow up
by adopting your own motivation and self-discipline to go after truth.Reading the Bible, in its entirety is a good
start.You would be surprised as to how
many believers have never even read the entire Bible.And of those who have, they will retain only
a small percentage of the information they have read.
The spiritual life is
not a one time read through, and then you are done.It is a lifetime commitment, and nothing
Those who complain,
those who criticize, those who make a point of letting everyone know of their
disagreement, are the ones that know the least, and are unwilling to
learn.They are the self-willed, the presumptuous,
self-appointed experts, and intolerant.
They dare to challenge,
and they are not intimidated by any power or authority, but rather place
themselves in opposition to established truths, legitimate truths not popular
views (which are generally not truths).
All unbelievers, all
followers of religions of the world, fit this description. They oppose
Christianity, or are simply indifferent toward it, and therefore place
themselves in opposition to the one and only true God.That is the quintessence of arrogance and
Any human being has
been on this earth for only a few decades.No human being has lived throughout the entirety of human history, let
alone any history that has occurred prior to humanity.And yet there is a vast majority who think
that they know everything about contemporary history, ancient history, and
Peter has given us
examples of angels that have failed, and the angels are far superior to the
human race in their intellect, in their lifespan, in virtually every aspect of
their existence, and still despite these greater attributes, many of the angels
How is it that humanity
who is inferior to angels, presumes that he knows as much or more?
People who live on
planet earth today, have been here for only a few years or decades.How is it than any of us, can presume to know
anything that is wise, especially if the only source of wisdom (the Bible), has
not been thoroughly studied?
And yet, people are
opinionated, and place their opinions ahead of their knowledge, and will even
get angry to the point of quitting Christianity, because they have been somehow
When a person
discontinues their search for truth, then they open themselves up to the
untruths of life.When the untruths of
life seize you, then your courage against truth grows to such a point that you
don t even fear God.
Tyrants of bad nations
do not fear other nations. Hardened criminals do not fear the workings of
law.Couples do not fear the principles
of marriage.Society redefines the
principles of family.Leaders redefine
the role of government.
Anything built on a false
foundation, will eventually crumble under its own weight.That is when the big trouble begins for
individuals, or for nations.
No one is above the
laws which God has ordained.No one can
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
