    Yes there are people that despise all manner of authority. From the president, government, law enforcement, employers, etc... 1 timothy 2:1 tells us to pray for ALL MEN especially those in authority. God calls for us to intercede for them. And while we are at it pray forgiveness for our own sin. We all must give an account for ourselves, not for Trump, John Doe next door, or anyone else, but self.

    The anointing of God, my Holy Father, teaches that the president, government, law enforcement and employers of the world are men chosen of men, having no authority over the humble walking after the Spirit in Christ. It is written, Now we know that what things soever the law says, it says to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
  • Verse 16 " Dumb Ass" Lolll but seriously I love the Bible
    I really love the Bible, you just gotta love it.

    WARNING to those SAVED: verse 1 false prophets and teachers.., verse 2 many shall follow ..., verse 3 they will make merchandise of you (pimping you ...), verse 4-9 Jehovah / GOD reminds us they may get-by with wickedness for a season but they will not get away. verse 10-22 we are given a detail description of how artfully these hell-bound people work to trick many into hell / the lake of fire.

    I don't need to read my newspaper anymore... just 2nd Peter! It's all pretty much described right there. Very, very sobering stuff.

    2 Peter 2:14 makes a lot of sense, in regards to false religion. It also convicts me, and shows to beware. It seems like the "an heart they have exercised with covetous practices" is multiteired. In context, he is speaking of a routine pattern of sin, specifically, with adultery, idolatry, and gainsaying. Yet, there are also theological practices that lead to seared consciences.

    Verse 5~Noah not only took on the task of building the ark, but he also shared his faith with others and tried to warn others. Noah cared about the lives of his family and others.
  • BSP
    Verse 19~Others may try to encourage us to disobey God and claim that it is too restrictive, but the very same ones are slaves to many harmful practices.
  • Servant of God
    Peter rails against the establishment, calling out the hypocrisy and warning of the dire consequences. He cites the OT and warns those who were once following the teaching about returning to worldly life. Bad stuff, for sure. But this must be taken seriously and without falling back for the stakes are high and eternity is a long time to suffer with the non-believers. God is Spirit. We are too
  • Jeffrey Edwards
    This is a timely chapter for the days that we live in. The church is being pressured to accept blatant disregard for God's word by watered down truths, and is being infiltrated by false teachers of God's word. Homosexuality not only is accepted by some churches it is somehow preached to be acceptable! I've not seen this taught first hand but I pray for those who are snared by this spirit.

    Verse 9: Focusing on Jehovah God's past acts of deliverance and how he has been loyal can help us to build our faith in him.

    2Peter2:12 "natural brute beasts;speak evil of the things they do not understand".I would like to add to my other post. The people this verse is describing are also false "Christians". A false "Christian" is not necessarily one who is a backslider,but one that attends "church" out of tradition of family or for show. One who professes to know God, but doesn't, this person goes after worldly things

    I think its important to read the Epistle as a whole, and to consider all its parts in that context. As we read in the first part that we are made partakers of the divine nature and furnished with all we need to overcome and never stumble, when we earnestly and diligently do all the things to ensure and confirm our calling of God; then set next to the kinds of opposition and contradictions of men.
  • Lu2677
    2Peter 2:12 God calls them "natural brute beasts, that were made to be destroyed, speak evil of the things they understand not and shall utterly perish in their own corruption." He is speaking of the unsaved, false teachers/preachers, and those that fall away from grace. They are predestined for destruction=made to be destroyed. Destroyed=eternal torment in hell.
  • Lu2677
    2 Peter 2:20"For if they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled there in, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than that the beginning." Escaped=saved, through the knowledge=saved by grace,through faith,and then are overcome AGAIN by unbelief and sin, they will be worse off than they were before saved.

    I feel that this chapter is a warning to non believers as well as hope to the believers. Also, to them that heard and believed and fell away, are as a dog going back and licking his own vomit. We are drawn away because of our own lusts.
  • BSP
    The Genesis account shows that Jehovah God specifically commanded Noah to build the ark but we read of no command for him to preach. Noah was a man of principle and he did not need a command in order to be a "preacher of righteousness" as verse 5 refers to him.
  • Irene123
    2 Pet. 2:11; Jude v.9; We, as mere humans, are not to take matters into our own hands, but give 'situations' over to the Lord. Even the angels knew better than to usurp God's power. Vengence is mine .....
  • Margaret
    Very sobering. False teachers are called spots. This helps us to understand what Jesus means when He says that He is coming for a church without spots. He will rid the church of false prophets and teachers.
  • Jeff
    The last few verses of this chapter seems to discribe the two major partys pick for president they both talk about God but have no resemblelans of holiness.
  • Obed nzongoi
    Only the spirit of God can reveal this thank you Jesus Christ you are the alpha and omega.
  • Saundra Anderson
    This is one of the most sobering chapters in the Bible as it is a warning to all of us to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. We are to be careful of our manner of living and of being in the company of scoffers and unbelievers,as just Lot was,plus listening to those who deny the faith. Sad is the end result of these people! They become wandering stars to whom the darkness is reserved forever!

    Jim, idle words in Stones concordance means useless words. Important words build up the body of Christ. Useful words proclaim Christ. OK?
  • Al
    I need to tighten up.
  • Jim
    please define idle words
  • John madden for verse 21
    Sinning against the lite is more serious than not knowing the way of righteousness..confronting doctrines are not popular among most folks
