2 Peter (2019)

2 Peter (2019)

May 2019 - December 2019

“Fake News” has become an often-used term since the 2016 election in the USA. In the days of the early church, the problem became fake teachers. Fake teachers taught fake doctrine, fake theology. Fake teaching and fake theology lead to an impotent and phony spiritual life—a pseudo spirituality which has eternal consequences for the individual.

In this short epistle Peter warns of the soon-to-come false teachers in the churches who will lead people astray and will destroy spiritual lives and churches. However, before he developed that theme, he first reminded his readers of the foundation of faith, that they might be forearmed to stand against the Satanic counterfeits that would soon come and then, as now, take captive those believers who were still willingly in bondage to their sin natures. This study will open your eyes to the dangers and deceptions Satan instigates and the only true solution, growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
