THE PERNICIOUS WAYS OF FALSE PROPHETS AND TEACHERS?

Our study so far has revealed that these false prophets and teachers teach heresy and ALSO live contrary to God’s word, according to Titus 1: 16.  Since “Pernicious ways” is the same as the way to destruction, I decided to further explore the root. The root word for destruction or pernicious shows that pernicious ways result in:

  •  destruction
  • death
  • losing one’s life
  • losing one’s reward
  • being lost

By reading 2 Peter 2, we understand that pernicious ways encapsulate unrighteous  conduct, corruption and unlawful deeds against God. People who follow pernicious ways:

  • rebel against God, like the angels that sinned – v. 4.
  • lift up themselves in God’s place – as in the nature of satan’s sin – v. 4
  • live the pre – Flood lifestyles where there was a high degree of interaction with demons – v. 5
  • engage in unlawful behavior – homosexuality, lesbianism and bisexual behavior – v.6
  • disrespect to God – v. 10
  • are full of adultery – v. 14
  • covetous – v. 14
  • love the occult, like Balaam did  – v. 15
  • speak words of vanity – v. 18
  • love the lusts of the flesh – v. 18
