II Timothy reveals a church in ruins, the foundation alone remaining and exposed to view. Consequently the discipline that was possible while the church was standing can no longer be put into operation. Instead of Timothy being instructed to exercise his disciplinary powers upon others, he is urged to exercise them upon himself. The foundation itself bears the seal: –
Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity (II Timothy 2:19)
The personal note is sounded in such statements as:
If a man therefore purge himself from these [not purge others out] (II Timothy 3:5)
Timothy is told to “shun” profane and vain babblings, to “flee” youthful lusts, to “follow” righteousness, faith, love, peace with them that call on the name of the Lord out of a pure heart.

The Church in Ruins: Brief Thoughts on II Timothy, Paul’s Last Letter to the Church
by — Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.
This brief survey of Paul’s last epistle will reveal that while almost 2000 years have transpired, the condition of the church has remained the same, and indeed has worsened in accordance with Paul’s warning to Timothy.
This book is not a call for a re-awakening of “the church,” because it is apparent that this is not Father’s plan. Rather, it is a call to individual men – men whose place in the Christian religious system has left them empty, stagnant, and restless – to awaken to Father’s call to be His faithful servant and stand outside of that system to look for other faithful men as well.
