2 Peter 2:1-3 The Message

Lying Religious Leaders

But there were also lying prophets among the people then, just as there will be lying religious teachers among you. They’ll smuggle in destructive divisions, pitting you against each other—biting the hand of the One who gave them a chance to have their lives back! They’ve put themselves on a fast downhill slide to destruction, but not before they recruit a crowd of mixed-up followers who can’t tell right from wrong.

They give the way of truth a bad name. They’re only out for themselves. They’ll say anything, anything, that sounds good to exploit you. They won’t, of course, get by with it. They’ll come to a bad end, for God has never just stood by and let that kind of thing go on.

2 Timothy 4:1-4 Easy-to-Read Version

4 Before God and Jesus Christ, I give you a command. Christ Jesus is the one who will judge all people—those who are living and those who have died. He is coming again to rule in his kingdom. So I give you this command: 2 Tell everyone God’s message. Be ready at all times to do whatever is needed. Tell people what they need to do, tell them when they are doing wrong, and encourage them. Do this with great patience and careful teaching.

3 The time will come when people will not listen to the true teaching. But people will find more and more teachers who please them. They will find teachers who say what they want to hear. 4 People will stop listening to the truth. They will begin to follow the teaching in false stories.

  1. Some of my favorite verses and topic. People nowadays are like sheep! They’ll follow blindly with no thought of their own, so sad. Blessings to you for this post, thanks,

  2. This is a good reminder. We need to test everything….wise as serpents, harmless as doves.

  3. I think this will be one of the toughest things for those who aren’t grounded in their faith … to be able to tell when they are being led astray.. Diane

    • It’s so important to learn the Bible so we can discern and see when something doesn’t fit right. But this takes devotion and a full surrender to Jesus. Strong Fellowship is important too, and we also have a responsibility to look out for our flock! 🙂
