having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:5
These are certainly strong words to consider. I believe he was warning us in no uncertain terms about professing one way of life and living another. It’s certainly not reserved for someone down the street, but for us.
But there’s also a bit of comfort from this verse. He was telling us that we can have the power of God on our side instead of going through life alone. We can have godliness and the power that comes with a godly life.
