Jude 8-16 Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones...
Have you ever been in a situation where you knew something very important and it was critical that you relay that information to another person? How would you deliver a message like that? Most likely with urgency, persistence and passion. Well that's definitely the tone I picked up as I read Jude 8-16. Jude wants to make sure we (Christians) don't overlook the seriousness of false teachers and teaching and just how dangerous that can be for us.
So what are some of the behaviors and descriptions Jude gives to alert us to false teachers/teaching? And how can we use this information going forward? Tami
P.S. As we start 2014 I wanted to let you know what to expect from P4. Starting Monday, January 6, our main focus will be reading through books of the Bible, passage by passage. We'll begin with 1 and 2 Timothy and then we'll likely turn to an Old Testament book. I encourage you to invite others to join P4 so they can read and learn along with us. (If you're reading this on the blog and would like to get our daily P4 email, you can sign up here.)
Powered by 4 is all about engaging God's Word and living it out--in community. So if it's encouragement you want or motivation you need, join the discussion on the P4 Blog--a place to weigh in on the daily scripture as well as share thoughts & questions. And, for a more in-depth look at Scripture, tune in to the daily Back to the Bible radio program with John Munro.
