2 Peter 2
Peter had warned the believers to be watchful against false teachers that seduce their hearts and mind by proclaiming fake words. Such are condemned already, and the wrath of God abides on them. Peter shows examples like, the fallen angels were cast down to hell for their disobedience, people during the time of Noah were destroyed by flood, and the city of Sodom and Gomorrah turned into ashes. It means that God will judge the disobedient but will protect His own people from destructions. These teachers are not different from the way of Balaam who can tell many things about God, but loved the wages of unrighteousness than following the way of God. There is no cure in them except the blood of Christ, therefore Christians should keep close to God's word and stand at a distance from the evil ways. Beware of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit, and a washed pig returns to the mud.” God bless.
