Beyond the Gospels: Peter

Today’s Scripture: 2 Peter 2
[Click the reference above to read online at BibleGateway.com.]

Peter identifies two indicators of false teachers. They follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and they despise authority. Their shameless and daring arrogance shows their lack of understanding of that which is spiritual.

False teachers are destructive as they are able to seduce the unstable. They are controlled by their animal instincts by being sinful and greedy.

Believers have been delivered from the sinful world to live holy lives. How are they to escape the heresy of the world? Keep on teaching and learning sound doctrine, know the truth by the study of the divinely inspired Scripture.

God the Holy Spirit will reveal clearly the contrast between the false and the true. The testimony of transformed lives and the testimony of the Scriptures help to confirm the Truth.

Thought for today: Know the Truth for it will set you on the right path.

Heavenly Father, the lawlessness of our world brings deception to unstable souls. Strengthen our faith and purpose, lest we be tempted and led astray.
