Depravity on Parade

Artwork for Paul’s Swan Song: A Study of 2 Timothy

Reality in the raw—that’s what the Bible gives us. It tells us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And the truth it tells is a ghastly story of godlessness. Human depravity marches across its pages. Sadly, many have grown so accustomed to watching the parade, whether in the Bible or the culture, that we’ve become numb to the depths of debauchery residing in the human heart. We’re no longer shocked and outraged. Perhaps that’s why the Bible sometimes backs up the truck and unloads a descriptive deluge of indecency on us. That’s exactly what we get in 2 Timothy 3:1-9.
