Bible: 2 Timothy 3:4-13

3:4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, loving pleasure rather than loving God. 3:5 They will maintain the outward appearance 1  of religion but will have repudiated its power. So avoid people like these. 2  3:6 For some of these insinuate themselves 3  into households and captivate weak women 4  who are overwhelmed with sins and led along by various passions. 3:7 Such women are always seeking instruction, 5  yet never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. 3:8 And just as Jannes and Jambres 6  opposed Moses, so these people – who have warped minds and are disqualified in the faith 7 also oppose the truth. 3:9 But they will not go much further, 8  for their foolishness will be obvious to everyone, just like it was with Jannes and Jambres. 9

3:10 You, however, 10  have followed my teaching, my 11  way of life, my purpose, my faith, my patience, my love, my endurance, 3:11 as well as the persecutions and sufferings 12  that happened to me in Antioch, 13  in Iconium, and in Lystra. 14  I endured these persecutions and the Lord delivered me from them all. 3:12 Now in fact all who want to live godly lives in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 3:13 But evil people and charlatans will go from bad to worse, 15  deceiving others and being deceived themselves. 16
