Commentary
Paul reiterates again the importance of Timothy’s charge. This charge (to defend the church from false doctrine) had been confirmed by the words of others about Timothy, given by the Holy Spirit (1:18b). Remembering these prophecies would greatly aid Timothy in continuing on in his task and waging “the good warfare.” Others, however, had rejected this task (1:6-7) They were not interested in stewarding the word of God and shepherding his people, but instead the wandered away into their own fancied discussions and speculations. This was the route by which they “made shipwreck of their faith.” We should notice three things here: These men were dangerous to the faith of the church, and Paul explicitly names them both as examples to Timothy of men not to imitate. Regardless of one’s position on whether these two men were ever Christian’s or not, it shows us that our doctrine is closely linked with our salvation. There is a “stewardship from God that is by faith” (1:4), and rejecting that stewardship is like sinking the only lifeboat available. A failure to appropriately handle and apply the word of God does not only result in shipwrecking one’s own faith; it amounts to blasphemy against God, the result of which is the church handing you over to Satan.
