Beware the Shysters and False Teachers

Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to heap abuse on celestial beings; 11 yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not heap abuse on such beings when bringing judgment on them from the Lord. 12 But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish.

2 Peter 2:10-12

Peter is very strong in his words against false teachers and false prophets.

We would do well to steer clear of them. It’s important, however, to recognize them when they come on the scene. Of course, these Shysters on our television sets, but they’re also in our churches. That’s why we need to be on our guard against errant doctrine.

We do that by studying the truth so that when errors pop up, we recognize them right away.
