Enduring Grace: 2 Timothy
The Bad News About the Human Condition
2 Timothy 3:1-9
Life will always be difficult, so following Jesus and learning from Him as you walk with Him is wise.
The word of God brings you the bad news that the human condition is bent and disordered, so life is difficult.
Denying the truth of the human condition creates fertile soil for predators to prey on the weak and the vulnerable.
When you understand the bad news, you understand your need for the good news.
Teach and discipline to help people thrive in Christ, and to protect the weak and vulnerable.
