11 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; 13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
In particular, 12b and 13 confuse me. Isn't disowning someone a form of being faithless? If I disown God, am I not also being faithless? Therefore the end seems contradictory to me. Am I missing something?
