Simply Disobedient

Apeithes

occurs six times in the New Testament, and is rendered by the word disobedient. Zacharias was promised that his son John would be used to turn the disobedient to the wisdom of the just (Luke 1:17). When the Lord appeared to Saul of Tarsus, he was not disobedient to the heavenly vision (Acts 26:19). In his list of great evils at the conclusion of Romans 1, Paul includes the fact that such people are disobedient to their parents (Rom. 1:30). He does the same thing in his list of sins in 2 Tim. 3:2. False teachers are both abominable and disobedient (Tit. 1:16). But lest anyone put on airs, before Christ called us to Himself, we were all that way (Tit. 3:3).
