2 Peter 2:15-19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 15 Who have forsaken the right way and have gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness,

 16 Who was rebuked for his iniquity by the dumb ass speaking with a man's voice forbidding the madness of the prophet.3

 17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a storm, for whom black darkness is reserved.

 18 For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. [To live in error is to live in sin.]

 19 Although these false teachers promise them liberty, they themselves are the slaves of corruption [sin, immorality]; for by whatever a man is overcome, he is enslaved.4 [The blind guides of Christianity teach the liberty of consequence-free sin and there no need to bear the cross; but Jesus said, "Unless you repent, all of you will perish," Luke 13:3,5; and Paul said, "The wages of sin is death," Rom 6:23. From the Word of the Lord within: "I am against the shepherds, who have prophesied a false salvation. Consequence-free sin does not exist. There are many that deny the cross and all that is necessary." There is a liberty for a crucified son of God, freed from all sin, walking in the royal law of love and fulfilling the law; but until that occurs, you will be banned from heaven when you die.]

Jude 1:12-13

 12 These are spots in your feasts of love, where they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear. They are clouds without water, carried along by the wind; trees without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom the blackness of darkness is reserved forever.
