False Teachers And Their Destruction
"But there were also false prophets among the people,
just as there will be false teachers among you.
They will secretly introduce destructive heresies,
even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them-
bringing swift destruction on themselves.
Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring
the way of truth into disrepute.
In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with
stories they have made up.
Their condemnation has long been hanging over
them, and their destruction has not been sleeping."
2 Peter 2: 1-3
In the last days, there will be false teachers and false prophets. They will introduce deceptive teachings and prophecies that will deceive even the children of God who are not fully grounded in Biblical truths. Many have sprouted up like poisonous mushrooms that look appealing to the eyes but will kill those who will eat them. Many false stories and pseudo gospels have sprouted like the Da Vinci Code, The Gospel of Judas, the teachings of the New Age Group, the Apocryphal Books of dubious origin and authorship. Their teachings are spiritual sounding but they are just like sugar coated poisons- sweet and sugary on the outside, but poisonous and deadly on the inside. We must be fully grounded on sound Biblical truths and we should always pray to the Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and discernment to know the difference between bogus truths and Biblical truths.
