Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/06/13

This week’s scripture is from 2 Peter:

Open Bible 2008 rev“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them …. (2 Peter 2:1)

We must hold fast to the truth. All those who believe in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ must resist every urging and every temptation to compromise the truth of His word to fit today’s social and politically correct teachings. False teachers do not announce themselves as such but slip in like thieves to steal the truth of God’s word; they arrive subtly and infect sound doctrine with heresies like disease invades the body. What was once healthy and strong becomes quickly compromised with sickness and weakness. Let not the grace and power of His word be tainted, but stay close in the word and tight with the Lord. Let your faith be found only in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

May the Lord bless you to be strong in the truth of His word.
