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 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, Peter instead highlights the behaviors and mindsets of those engaged in false teaching in order to help us identify those who would readily lead us away from God's truth. Peter then 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.
Based on this passage, why is it so important for us to regularly take in God's Word and know what it says (truth)? What did 2 Peter 2 reveal about the value God puts on righteousness (doing what we know is right, being honest and speaking truth)? Tami
