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 less.


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 stupidity.


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 pre-historic history.


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 failed.


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 offended.


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 redefine them.

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.
