11.30.2015 New Testament: 2Pe 2.18
To read the Bible in a year, read Second Peter 2 on November 30, In the year of our Lord 2015
By Don Ruhl
False teachers use the various lusts of the flesh to capture new Christians, as Peter revealed,
For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error (2 Peter 2.18).
False teachers speak great words, but when you examine what they have said, it really means nothing, or at least their words do not promise what they claim to promise. False teachers seek to pull aside with fleshly temptations those who have not become fully grounded in the faith yet.
Notice that what Peter says of false teachers in this second chapter does not describe people who merely disagree with us, but people who actively seek to lure Christians into sin.
