But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered.2 Peter 2:1-2
Peter noted the words of the false teachers. During his time, there were people that spoke lies about who Jesus was and the authority that he had. These false teachers tried to persuade anyone they could to believe the words that they were saying. They wanted nothing more than to destroy Jesus in the eyes of the people and the ones to come.
False teachers are here today as well. There are still those who do not believe in Jesus or the Word of God. There are also those who twist the words of Scripture and make God out to be a liar. You must be on guard against false teachers. Protect yourself against their lies and schemes, and speak truth to others about these false teachers.
A Prayer to Remember
Please help me be aware of false teachers. May I be on guard against what is not true. Amen.
