Jesus told the disciples that false teachers would come (Matthew 24:11), Peter had listened.
Peter gives three warning signs for identifying false teachers:
- They condone immorality. (Wickedness)
- Greed. They serve God to promote their own identity.
- Lying. They twist the scripture to suit their own agenda.
Peter reminds us God did not even spare His own angels from judgement.
Peter reminds us of what happened in the days of Noah and Lot when the people would not turn from their wicked ways.
We become slaves to whatever we think about constantly.
People who turn away from following Jesus, reject their only way of escape from a life of bondage.
