2 Peter 2:1–3 (ESV)
False Prophets and Teachers
2 But false prophets also arose among the people, just
as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the
way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
There will be many false prophets
and false pastors today. They will creep into churches and fill the pulpits with destructive teachings. How do you know who the false prophets are? How do you spot them? You measure their teachings and actions to the Word of God alone.
God’s Word is the truth, don’t venture away from its teachings, or add or take away from God’s Word. Renew a right spirit within me and a fire to study God’s Word… the Bible.
I pray: O Lord,
help me to study and understand your Word, trusting in your saving grace. Amen.
