Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

But there were also false prophets among the people, …And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. – 2 Pet 2:1-2

Just because someone has followers doesn’t mean (s)he is right. Peter told the early church to be careful of false doctrine. He cautioned that many would follow after false teachers. Any doctrine that does not honor Jesus as King of kings and Lord of lords is false! Any teacher who does not teach salvation through faith in Jesus Christ is a false prophet.

All our love, attention, and focus should be on Jesus. Do not be deceived. Ultimately, the responsibility for testing the word you hear rests with you. Test the word you hear from the pulpit on Sundays. How does what you’re hearing measure up to the Word in your Bible?

Prayer:

Father, in Jesus’ name I ask that You would give me wisdom and discernment to determine if the teaching I am hearing is true, or false. Help me to learn and understand Your word, so I can compare everything I hear to the perfect truth: Scripture!
