What Does Having a Form of Godliness But Denying Its Power Mean In 2 Timothy 3:5?

2 Timothy 3:1-5 states: "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

What Is The Sin That Is Leading Unto Death?

This question comes from 1 John 5:16,17: "If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death.

What Was The Thorn In The Flesh?

The question comes from 2 Corinthian 12:7-10: "And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

Is A Spouse Still Married “In The Eyes of God” When He/She Divorces Her Spouse For Unscriptural Reasons?

No.

We must speak as the oracles/utterances of God (1 Peter 4:11). This man-made phrase “married in the eyes of God” is a foreign idea to the Scriptures. The Bible makes a distinction between being “bound” (Romans 7:1-4; 1 Corinthians 7:39,40) and being “married.” The wife is not "still married in the eyes of God" when she divorces her husband. She is unmarried as 1 Corinthians 7:11 states, “let her remain unmarried”. She is still bound to her spouse though (Romans 7:1-4).

Did Matthew Actually Write The Gospel Claimed To Him Even Though It Is In The Third Person?

One of the objections that is usually made against the gospel writers is the one that is made by a famous skeptic: “Matthew’s Gospel is written completely in the third person, . . .
