11/28/19: 2 Peter 2:1-22; Psalm 119:113-128; Proverbs 28:19-20
Like Paul, Peter has a continued strong warning for the church to always be on the look-out for false teachers. He states that false prophets will continue to exist & that they will seek to exploit the church. This reality has not changed in the slightest today.
2 Peter 2: But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
