CAPTIVE silly women

 

2 Timothy 3:6

King James Version

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,


Who is a captive, silly woman?

Why must we beware we don't turn out that way?

Why must we repent, if we are?

Why must we flee from them?

Only SPIRIT can make things clear, through Scripture.

Their folly will become as obvious to everybody as did that of Moses’ opponents.

These men are like those old Egyptian frauds Jannes and Jambres, who challenged Moses. They were rejects from the faith, twisted in their thinking, defying truth itself. But nothing will come of these latest impostors. Everyone will see through them, just as people saw through that Egyptian hoax.
