2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

“dividing the word of truth” does not mean to express your opinions or your feelings or to decide whether you should or should not live by certain parts of it … and I believe many people do this in their attempt to revolve the bible around their own lives which then puts them in the category spoken of in the next verse …

2 Timothy 2:16: “But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”

They in fact do not shun these things, they argue and defend and justify which then leads them further into ungodliness … One ought read the entirety of that chapter. I find it ironic how the word of God has become quite esoteric …

Matthew Henry’s Commentary says this: “It is rightly to divide the word of truth. Not to invent a new gospel, but rightly to divide the gospel that is committed to their trust. To speak terror to those to whom terror belongs, comfort to whom comfort is needed; to give every one his portion in due season”

We are to study God’s Word to learn His will for us and to learn how we can apply it to our daily walk. We have an obligation and the privilege, to not only study the Bible for our own spiritual growth, we study it to help others. We must know what we believe and why. If we put the proper emphasis on the Bible we will not be led astray by false teachers.

The problem is we have so many individuals in more prominent positions of leadership who everyone simply follows and listens to, yet are sending all of them straight to Hell with their false ideas and blasphemy against God. Many times because the people do not study for themselves or take the word for what it is. Tho, in today’s translations everything we read must be studied anyhow. It sickens me to hear someone say they do not sugar coat in their preaching then to discover they both teach and live against God’s Word in some fashion or another. So all his (or her) followers see this and copy that action with the justification that “well that person is greatly blessed and does it so it must be okay for us to do it as well” …

NO! Wake Up People! I can smell the flesh burning from your bones already!
