Metaphysical meaning of Hermogenes (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Hermogenes (mbd)
Hermogenes, her-mog'-e-nes (Gk.)--born of Hermes; Mercury-born.

A Christian in Asia who turned away from Paul (II Tim. 1:15).

Meta. The outer, verbal expression of one's Christian principles. This outer expression is very likely to be cut off for a time when the inner word of Truth (Paul) is limited in its activities by the dominating force of the unspiritualized will and intellect (is imprisoned in Rome). Firm establishment in Truth is necessary that one may remain faithful in one's outer thoughts, words, and acts when going through some serious conflict within oneself.
