2 Peter 2:20-22

New International Version

20 If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. 22 Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”

Wow this is a word. If you have escaped something why would you ever want to go back? In my mind it makes no since to me. But we as Christian’s have overcome this world. We might be in this world but we are not of this world. Meaning that we live in a place that is wicked but we are not. And when you have come out of sin it is easy to go back unless you truly give your life over to Christ. Satan comes quick to kill steal and destroy. It is up to us to stay on our knees and in the word so we don’t go back to whatever entangle us. They are again entangled therein and overcome - The word rendered "entangled," (ἐμπλέκω emplekō,) from which is derived our word "implicate," means to braid in, to interweave; then to involve in, to entangle. It means here that they become implicated in those vices like an animal that is entangled in a net.

God is the only way to escape this world from all the things that get thrown at you.
