Holman Bible Dictionary

Self-Willed

Additional Links
To do something arbitrarily without divine permission; to act on one's own decision rather than considering the needs of others and the purpose of God. Jacob rebuked Simeon and Levi for wanton, undisciplined actions (Genesis 49:6 ). Titus 1:7 teaches that a bishop cannot be self-willed, that is stubborn and arrogant. Such activity is presumptuous and marks the fleshly person ( 2 Peter 2:10 ).
