2 Peter 2:1-3
"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."
It seems that most of Christianity just goes along with the flow of what is being taught as Christianity today, and no one seems to buck the trend openly other than a select few teachers but does anyone ever ask just who are these false teachers of today, and what are the damnable heresies that they teach? I guess verse 2 sheds some light on why no one seems to point out the false teachers of today for "many shall follow their pernicious ways" Oh how sad that many have been taken in by false teachers, it reminds me of Matthew 7:22-23 where Jesus said "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
I believe it's clear that the false teachers that Peter refers to are false Christian Teachers who Jesus warned us about in Matthew 7:15 where he said "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." Who are the sheep? It's clear that Christians are sheep but these false teachers just look like sheep they are not real Christians but wolves pretending to be Christians. How can we know these wolves? Go back to 2 Peter "by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you" Look for plastic words and the want of money from you will be a dead giveaway and that pretty much describes 90% of the televangelist we see today.
