2 Peter 2:1-3 In the past there were false prophets among God’s people. It is the same now. You will have some false teachers in your group. They will teach things that are wrong—ideas that will cause people to be lost. And they will teach in a way that will be hard for you to see that they are wrong. They will even refuse to follow the Master who bought their freedom. And so they will quickly destroy themselves. Many people will follow them in the morally wrong things they do. And because of them, others will say bad things about the way of truth we follow. These false teachers only want your money.

Beware False Teachers

Whenever we believe something passionately, as I certainly do when it comes to the Good News of Jesus Christ, there’s a risk – a big risk, in fact – that our passion can lead us down the wrong path.

When I gave my life to Jesus, I was at a particularly vulnerable stage in my life, having just suffered a deep betrayal. And as much as I wanted to believe in Him, I was also wary of not being led astray in my vulnerability and ending up in some cult.

I thank God that He led me to a small church where the pastor faithfully, humbly, and powerfully taught the Word of God. I didn’t realise it back then, but in his life, and in the lives of the handful of other members of this apparently unimpressive little church, it was all about Jesus, and not about them. But that’s not always the case, even in some of the large, apparently successful, growing churches.

2 Peter 2:1-3 In the past there were false prophets among God’s people. It is the same now. You will have some false teachers in your group. They will teach things that are wrong—ideas that will cause people to be lost. And they will teach in a way that will be hard for you to see that they are wrong. They will even refuse to follow the Master who bought their freedom. And so they will quickly destroy themselves. Many people will follow them in the morally wrong things they do. And because of them, others will say bad things about the way of truth we follow. These false teachers only want your money.

Beware of false teachers. They point to themselves, rather than Christ.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
