A: MEMORY VERSE: “As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.” – Proverbs 26:11
B: BIBLE TEXT: 2 Peter 2:20-22
C: LESSON INTRODUCTION: In this teaching we shall explain the following three terms:
a.: “Do Not” – as used here is a command of a prohibition. Do not do such thing.
b.: “Return” – means to go back; to come/take back to old place or to old thing.
c.: “Vomit” – is any stomach content disgorged through the mouth.
So literally returning to ones vomit is simple going back or taking back that which was once rejected, abandoned and forsaken openly and willingly. Spiritually, vomit in all forms of ungodliness,sins, all ungodly behaviour or activities.
Do not return to your vomit to a Christian means: do not go back to your old sinful life.
