Knowledge of the Truth

I was reading 2 Timothy 3 this morning for my Bible reading and was struck by verse 6-7 which say, “For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.” (ESV) The main words that stuck out to me are “never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.” Now in theology, I’ve had many people who have told me they want to just read the Bible and not go beyond that, but that’s not the point! If you’re stopping at reading and not seeing how it applies to your life you’re wasting your reading of the Bible. Knowledge of the truth implies implementing the truths you’re learning to your life, and if you don’t you will be carried away by your various passions as they tempt you. What do you need to do in order to flee some of these passions?
