THE STRATEGY OF FALSE TEACHERS

From: If Not for God "devotional"

Bible text: But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you... Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed. (2 Peter 2:1-3)

Do not believe in something simply because you have heard it (Acts 17:11), we are full of opinions and speculations these days. The wise have a saying
"To see the light of wisdom, you first must empty your cup" Peter assured us that false teachers will be judged. Even though it seems they prosper, their judgment is not idle. God’s wrath pours out on them even in allowing them to continue, thus heaping up more and more condemnation and hardness of heart in themselves.

Many false teachers, both today and in previous times, present a gospel that has self-gratification at its heart. All this is presented with deceptive words, because false teaching never announces itself. The most distressing aspect of the work of false teachers is not that they are among you (2 Peter 2:1). False teachers always have been and always will be among Christians. The most distressing fact is that so many Christians will follow their destructive ways. A finished product is one that has already seen its better days, be warned.
