Warning against False Teachers

2Now there were false prophets among the people, just as there also will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves.G1161G1096G5578G2532G1722G2992G2532G5613G2071G5572G1722G5213G3748G3919G684G139G2532G720G1203G59G846G1863G1438G5031G684 2Many people will follow their immoral ways, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned.G2532G4183G1811G846G684G1223G3739G3598G225G987 3In their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. The ancient verdict against them is still in force, and their destruction is not delayed.G2532G1722G4124G4112G3056G1710G5209G3739G2917G1597G691G3756G2532G846G684G3573G3756 4For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but threw them into the lowest hell and imprisoned them in chains of deepest darkness, holding them for judgment;G1063G1487G2316G5339G3756G32G264G235G5020G3860G4577G2217G5083G1519G2920 5and if he did not spare the ancient world but protected Noah, a righteous preacher, along with seven others when he brought the flood on the world of ungodly people;G2532G5339G3756G744G2889G235G5442G3575G3590G2783G1343G1863G2627G2889G765 6and if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed them by burning them to ashes, making them an example to ungodly people of what is going to happen to them;G2532G5077G4172G4670G2532G1116G5077G2632G2692G5087G5262G3195G764 7and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man who was greatly distressed by the immoral conduct of lawless people -G2532G4506G1342G3091G2669G5259G766G391G1722G113 8for as long as that righteous man lived among them, day after day he was being tortured in his righteous soul by what he saw and heard in their lawless actions -G1063G1342G1460G1722G846G990G2532G189G928G1342G5590G2250G1537G2250G459G2041 9then the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials and to hold unrighteous people for punishment on the day of judgment,G2962G1492G4506G2152G1537G3986G1161G5083G94G1519G2250G2920G2849 10especially those who satisfy their flesh by indulging in its passions and who despise authority. Being bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to slander glorious beings.G1161G3122G4198G3694G4561G1722G1939G3394G2532G2706G2963G5113G829G3756G5141G987G1391 11Yet even angels, although they are greater in strength and power, do not bring a slanderous accusation against them from the Lord.G3699G32G5607G3187G2479G2532G1411G5342G3756G989G2920G2596G846G3844G2962 12These people, like irrational animals, are mere creatures of instinct that are born to be caught and killed. They insult what they don't understand, and like animals they, too, will be destroyed,G1161G3778G5613G5446G249G2226G1080G1519G259G2532G5356G987G1722G3739G50G2704G1722G846G5356 13suffering harm as punishment for their wrongdoing. They take pleasure in wild parties in broad daylight. They are stains and blemishes, reveling in their deceitful pleasures while they eat with you.G2865G3408G93G2233G2237G5172G1722G2250G4696G2532G3470G1792G1722G846G539G4910G5213 14With eyes full of adultery, they cannot get enough of sin. They seduce unsteady souls and have had their hearts expertly trained in greed. They are doomed to a curse.G2192G3788G3324G3428G2532G180G266G1185G793G5590G2588G2192G1128G4124G2671G5043 15They have left the straight path and wandered off to follow the path of Bosor's son Balaam, who loved the reward he got for doing wrong.G2641G2117G3598G4105G1811G3598G903G1007G3739G25G3408G93 16But he was rebuked for his offense. A donkey that normally cannot talk spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet's insanity.G1161G2192G1649G2398G3892G880G5268G5350G1722G444G5456G2967G3913G4396 17These men are dried-up springs, mere clouds driven by a storm. Gloomy darkness is reserved for them.G3778G1526G4077G504G3507G1643G5259G2978G3739G2217G4655G5083G1519G165 18By talking high-sounding nonsense and using sinful cravings of the flesh, they entice people who have just escaped from those who live in error.G1063G5350G5246G3153G1185G1722G1939G4561G766G3689G668G390G1722G4106 19Promising them freedom, they themselves are slaves to depravity, for a person is a slave to whatever conquers him.G1861G846G1657G846G5225G1401G5356G1063G3739G5100G2274G2532G5129G1402 20For if, after escaping the world's corruptions through a full knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Messiah, they are again entangled and conquered by those corruptions, then their last condition is worse than their former one.G1063G1487G668G3393G2889G1722G1922G2962G2532G4990G2424G5547G1707G3825G1707G5125G1161G1096G2274G2078G5501G846G4413 21It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to know it and turn their backs on the holy commandment that was committed to them.G1063G2258G2909G846G3361G1921G3598G1343G2228G1921G1994G1537G40G1785G3860G846 22The proverb is true that describes what has happened to them: "A dog returns to its vomit," and "A pig that is washed goes back to wallow in the mud."G1161G4819G846G3588G227G3942G2965G1994G1909G2398G1829G1994G2532G5300G3068G1519G2946G1004
