How can such people be Christians?

2 Timothy Bible Background

10.29.2017 – New Testament: 2Ti 3.6–7

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Timothy 3 on October 29, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

In Second Timothy 3, Paul warned of times coming when people would take on ungodly traits and it appears that he speaks of Christians doing these things, including,

For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Timothy 3.6–7). 

Even Christians become like the world when they cease listening to the word of God. That is why we cannot overemphasize listening to the word of God and meditating upon it daily.
