Hymenaeus and Alexander

April 23, 2009 Leave a comment

Christians must be evervigilant.

Hymenaeus and Alexander were sincere believers whose faith ws “shipwrecked.”

Paul “handed them over to Satan” to teach them a lesson.

It is vital that believers not engage in sinful actions which require this level of intervention.

But many of us do, in fact, require a strong level of correction.

Living the Christian life is not all about functionalism. Sociology‘s conflict theories have value in helping a Christian interpret the world’s events, too.

Paul reminds Timothy to “fight the good fight” against Hymenaeus and Alexander.

I wonder what it means to hand these two men over to Satan?Related articles by Zemanta
