“Departed From The Truth”
Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, who have departed from the truth.
2 Timothy 2:17-18
Hymenaneus and Philetus departed from the truth. They chose to forsake the truth. They did not forget the truth. They knew the truth but decided to forsake the truth.
Even today, sadly, Preachers, Teachers, and Laymen, and women are forsaking the truth. Some for political, financial, or popularity gain. There is nothing we can gain in this world that is worth walking away from the truth of the Gospel.
It is dangerous for our souls to forsake the truth. Yet, it is even more dangerous to lead people away from the truth. There will be consequences for forsaking the truth of the Gospel and even more severe ones for leading others away from the truth of the Gospel.
These are the days that we must stand for the truth of the Gospel, even when it is not popular. It is sinful to depart from the truth of the Gospel. We need to pray that we are not led astray by smooth-talking Preachers and Teachers. The Bible must be our source for the truth.
