Chapter 3

3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.


Apostasy, Summary: Apostasy, "falling away," is the act of professed Christians who deliberately reject revealed truth

(1) as to the deity of Jesus Christ, and

(2) redemption through His atoning and redeeming sacrifice 1 John 4:1-3; Philippians 3:18; 2 Peter 2:1. Apostasy differs from error concerning truth, which may be the result of ignorance Acts 19:1-6 or heresy, which may be due to the sphere of Satan 2 Timothy 2:25,26 both of which may consist with true faith. The apostate is perfectly described in 2 Timothy 4:3,4. Apostates depart from the faith, but not from the outward profession of Christianity 2 Timothy 3:5. Apostate teachers are described in ; 2 Timothy 4:3; 2 Peter 2:1-19; Jude 1:4,8,11-13,16.

Apostasy in the church, as in Israel Isaiah 1:5,6; 5:5-7 is irremediable, and awaits judgment ; 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; 2 Peter 2:17,21; Jude 1:11-15; Revelation 3:14-16.

3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,


Sin. (See Scofield "Romans 3:23") .

3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.


(See Scofield "Romans 1:16") .

3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:


(See Scofield "1 John 3:7") .

3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.


complete. (See Scofield "Matthew 5:48") .
