2 Peter 2:22 (b) We see in this type a picture of an unsaved sinner who has cleansed himself from bad habits and the evil ways in which he has lived. He enters into a Christian group as though he were a Christian. His outward actions are made clean and proper, but his heart remains unchanged. After enduring this religious atmosphere for a while, he turns back to his old ways. There never was a true conversion in his soul, but only a renovation of the outside. (See also Matthew 12:43-45).
