Warning About False Teaching

Many residents of Washington remember exactly where they were and what they were doing on the morning Mount St. Helen’s blew wide-open. The shock wave rattled windows for hundreds of miles around. Prior to the eruption, scientists monitoring the peak didn’t know when it would … More

  3. In this passage (vv. 14-15), we learn that he preached to the ungodly of his day and warned them of the coming of the Lord in judgment. In these two short verses, Jude refers to what Enoch saw concerning the Second Coming of Jesus in the Book of Genesis, and 6,000 years later, what he saw about the Lord Coming with ten thousands of His saints to bring judgment upon this wicked world.
Warning is given about false teachers in this passage (vv. 16-19). Unfortunately these are things we tend to have problems with today and need to make sure we are not doing. They include grumbling, fault finding, following our own desires, bragging and flattering others to gain advantage for ourselves (v. 16). The apostles also gave warning that there would be mockers in the last days who would walk around according to their own ungodly lusts (vv. 17-18). It is obvious that these mockers did not have the Holy Spirit and thus were not born again (v. 19).


It is very important for me to be able to recognize who false teachers are, the error of their teaching  and be able to warn others about their false teaching.
