Who is ever learning? (2 Timothy 3:7
2 "Timothy 3: 5 "Having the appearance of godliness, but denying its
power. Avoid such people." These corrupt men corrupt men, have the
"appearance of godliness",
"Avoid such people," are the false apostles, that have the appearance of godliness ,but are deceitful workers that disguise themselves as apostles of Christ, in 2 Cor.11:3-4 Paul describes them as follows.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (NASB)
13 "For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising
themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan
disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not
surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of
righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds."
In the first century these false apostles threaten to corrupt the Christian congregation of Corinth, and so Paul was prompted to write:
2 Corinthians 11:3-4 (NASB)
3 "But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his
craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and
purity of devotion to Christ. 4 For if [a]one comes and preaches
another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different
spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you
have not accepted, you bear this beautifully."
2 Timothy 3: 6 " For among them are those who creep into households
and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various
It is obvious from 2 Timothy 3:6 that these false apostles directed their attention to capture "weak women" (in context ,meaning spiritually or morally weak), they "creep-slyly into households," and strive to get the favor of such " weak women" and through them influence the rest of the household. Being spiritually weak ,such women succumb to the flattering speech and pretentious manner of those that make themselves appear, as servants of righteousness.
These weak women are also " burdened with sins and led astray by various passions." This means they do not hate what is wicked and sinful, and being morally weak are an easy prey for the "false apostles," and no doubt , some of these women are "led astray by various passions" allow themselves to be talked into committing sexual immorality.
2 Timothy 3:7 "Always learning and never able to arrive at a
knowledge of the truth."
They continue learning but do not have the motivation to fully appreciate and understand the Christian teachings, thus they never improve their spirituality, and by allowing themselves to come under the influence of the false apostles/teachers, their plight only worsens.
Eve was an example of one who, though she knew God’s command, did not really come to know God through appreciation, love and loyalty to him. She became a weak woman led by her desire. Satan the Devil used her as a tool to reproach God and to induce Adam to sin.Genesis 3:1-5.
