Today’s reading: 2 Peter 2:1-22

Peter puts out a strong warning against false teaching in 2 Peter 2, alerting and cautioning us about succumbing to the persuasive manners, ways and words of those who twist the truth about God and faith in Christ. But rather than pointing out specific false ideas and principles being put forth, Peter instead highlights the behaviors and mindsets of those engaged in false teaching in order to help us identify those who would lead us away from God’s truth. He also spends quite a bit of time explaining the penalty and judgment that will come to these truth twisters, supporting his words with historical examples of God’s judgment.

What does this chapter reveal about the importance of regularly taking in God’s Word and knowing what it says? What did 2 Peter 2 show you about the value God puts on righteousness (doing what’s right and honest and speaking truth)? Tami
