Among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander
Just today someone wrote to me asking this question:
Pastor John, some people look at the verses in 1 Timothy 1:18-20 and say that if Hymenaeus and Alexander once had faith, but now have shipwrecked it, we must conclude that one can lose true faith in Christ. How would you respond to this claim? Is there more that can be said about these two men, besides, â€œSince other Scriptures teach perseverance, then we must assume that the faith of Hymenaeus and Alexander must have been a mere professionâ€?
I sought to provide an answer here. I hope it can be useful to others. - JS
