|2 Peter 2:12-14|
12 But these, like natural brute beasts, made to be captured and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they do not understand; and will utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And will receive the reward of unrighteousness, like those who count it a pleasure to carouse in the day time. They are spots and blemishes, reveling in their own deceptions while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery [sexual lust and love of the world], who cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls. They have exercised their heart in covetous practices, they are cursed children, [The false prophets and false teachers did not have the patience to bear the cross and crucify their lusts and affections before preaching and teaching, and so they are filthy dreamers: filthy in mind and spirit and dreaming that they are saved, righteous, and capable of preaching and teaching. From the Word of the Lord within: "They are filthy dreamers;" they are filthy because their hearts are defiled with all manner of sins that they still commit with disregard to the Lord's many warnings and requirements, and they are dreaming that they are righteous. The flesh, including sexual desires and the carnal mind, which is enmity with God, must be destroyed before salvation is attained.]
|Jude 1:11-13 |
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.
