1Ti 5:11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
1Ti 5:12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
1Ti 5:13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
1Ti 5:14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
1Ti 5:15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.
Most do not understand the “power” of marriage, and the effect it can have on Satan, and “the angels.” And when both the man and the woman are operating upon sound doctrine, and they both are following God the Father’s design for marriage, Satan is no match for this union, or ‘oneness,’ and there is salvation from being victimized by Satan. In Ephesians 3:10 we are told that we the church make God’s manifold wisdom “known” unto the angels, and the angels can rejoice when the word of God is working effectually within the saint like God intended. In verses 11-13 Paul speaks of women who are not married, and need that type of salvation. Paul says that the younger widows are not to be taken in, because if they become “idle” (without a husband) for too long, Satan will have a chance to “speak reproachfully” about her, and she will be an easy target for him. Paul says if a woman remains unmarried she has “cast off her first faith,” and that she has “damnation,” this is not talking about losing her salvation from the debt and penalty of her sins, this “damnation” was a functional damnation, and has to do with the woman not following God’s design, but following Satan; and she, like some in Paul’s day were “already turned aside after Satan,” they were not spiritually lost, but they belonged to him, and were “turned aside” after the things of this world.
Tit 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
Tit 2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
Tit 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
Tit 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
Tit 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
The woman’s “first faith” is the woman operating upon God’s designed will for her as explained in His word; that consists of the woman understanding and appreciating the godly purpose in which she was created. Furthermore, in Titus 2:4-5 shows the ‘blueprint’ for a godly woman, and one that is “sound in the faith” and if the woman is not operating upon “sound doctrine,” then she is an easy target for Satan, and the word of God will be “blasphemed” because she is not following God’s design for the woman in His word. This salvation saves the woman from the damnation of being “led away,” “turned aside,” and “deceived” by Satan and his ministers, and the things of this world, and having a functional damnation because she is “led” by Satan, and not by the doctrine according to godliness.
2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Ti 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Finally, as we can see throughout the world, the attendance of the woman in the churches is greater than the male attendance in the church, and this is not by chance, or just a coincidence. These men spoken of in verses 1-5 are active in the church world today, and they have a particular doctrine that can cater more towards the women that the men, this doctrine caters to a particular set of “divers lusts” (different lusts). Today we find the doctrine of health, wealth, and relationshipas the primary message being preached by the preachers in the churches around the world, and this doctrine caters to the ones in the pursuit of one, if not all of these “divers lusts.” And as we all know someone who attends church every week, three or more times a week, and has been going to church all their life, but do not understand God’s will today, or their bibles, let alone God’s plan of salvation; it can be said that these are ones who are “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” You see, this is because they have more “care” for the “things of this world,” and they can be addicted to what they hear, because this man’s ‘godly’ appearance can be deceiving, but we are told in God’s word that it is not the outward man that is to display godliness; but it is the inward man that shows the effectual genius of God’s word working through the saint in godliness.
