You Missed the Resurrection!

The Bible exhorts us, "But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as does a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some."(2 Timothy 2:16-19) Hymenaeus and Philetus preached that the resurrection had already happened. So, some folks "backslid." Their faith was "overthrown." Think about it. These two preached, "The resurrection has passed. You missed out!" So, some who professed faith in Jesus had their faith overthrown. They believed what these men said over what the Word of God said. In essence, they said, "God is a liar. His promises aren_t to be trusted. I_m going back to the world." But the true convert doesn_t fall away. He trusts His promises.(Acts 2:21) There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
