“And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:2 The way of truth will be evil spoken of - By those who blend all false and true Christians together.
2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways. "Lascivious doings" (Revised Version). Immoral life is the result of false doctrine, and thus a reproach is brought upon the truth.
