2 Timothy 4:9-12

www.gypr.wordpress.com Psalm 27

9 Do your best to come to me quickly, 10 for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. 11 Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry. 12 I sent Tychicus to Ephesus.

  1. Umm Im not sure what this Scripture is saying. All I can see is that Timothy is alone except for Luke and wants Mark to come to him and someone else.

    ?????????

  2. This is part of the letter, or communication side of this epistle. These guys did not have phones, email, or MySpace to keep up with their lives. Paul is literally telling Timothy what his life is like in this Roman jail that he is in.

    He wants Tim to come to him so that he can instruct him and tell him some things that he did not want to put into the letter. Shows wisdom and discretion on Paul’s part.

  3. reading this vs 10 sticks out that Paul was deserted for love of this world or love of life…and well studying i saw two different views because one is for predestination and the other is free will people…

    Predestination people say this guy didnt lose his faith and go back to the world, they just left Paul because they didnt want to die because of the faith—they were turning to the lusts of the world but just wanted to live and do what they can to not face persecution

    free will peeps, said they turned from the faith and went back to their own ways and lived the life they wanted to live

    However both views shows 1 consistency, they left a fellow believer alone when he needed them most, need the comfort, encouragement, love and compassion…How many times have we left fellow believers alone whether its because we didnt want to face persecution or because we wanted to do our own thing…either way you interpret this or where ever you stand in your views listed above…you cannot cannot cannot leave a fellow believer alone, you need to be their accountability partner, comfort, compassion, love and friendship…NO matter what the situation…The marines have a saying, no one is left behind…if a marine is hurt, they sacrifice themselves so they are not left behind…We need to do the same, dont leave the weak behind and dont let others fight the faith ALONE…

    love ya guys
