As I study the word of God today, I see so many things that are in today's churches, and Dr. Henry Morgan from Days of Praise states it so very well in his devotional for today, as you read it think about the things God is saying here, apply it to your life, and may it bring you closer to our Lord. God bless you this Saturday, may you have a very wonderful weekend. Now the message.Beware of False Teachers
"Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness." (2 Peter 3:17)
Peter's final epistle, especially chapters 2 and 3, is the classic New Testament passage on the false teachers that would plague the church in the "last days" (v. 3). In addition to the characteristics listed in the introductory verse, 2:1 (e.g., slipping in surreptitiously heretical teachings, denying the redemptive work and Lordship of Christ), a number of their attributes are predicted for our guidance, as follows:
They will "wrest the scriptures" (3:16), distorting their literal meaning to conform to their own philosophical preferences. This will involve using "feigned words" (2:3)--that is, plastic words, words with devious meanings to make them say what their users wish to convey. They may well be very eloquent and seductive in their speech, "when they speak great swelling words of vanity" (2:18).
They will deny the doctrine of special creation and the judgment of the worldwide Flood (3:5-6), teaching instead that "all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation" (v. 4), and will scoff at the Second Coming. They "despise government" and are "presumptuous" and "selfwilled . . . not afraid to speak evil of dignities" (2:10).
They both practice and defend immoral acts, "having eyes full of adultery" (v. 14). Yet they maintain their religious ties because they have hearts "exercised with covetous practices" (v. 14), seeing nothing evil in taking money for personal gain from those whose faith they seek to undermine.
This is, indeed, a fitting description of many modern liberal theologians, religious bureaucrats in the big denominations, "New Age" preachers, college teachers of religion, etc. Although this is not a pleasant subject, Christians urgently need to awaken to what is happening, and "beware"! HMM
I am a Born again Christian Woman,Preacher's Wife, Mom to 5 grown children, Nana to 11, and great grandma to 8. I love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul and mind.
I just want to be all he wants me to and to live a simple and very peaceful life serving him daily. I want to be a blessing to those around me, and let my lord shine through me. We use the KJV Bible only, we believe it is the holy word of God, written by inspired men of old, filled and being led by the Holy Spirit of God.
