Bob SchultzBob Schultz, April 29, 2012
Part of the 2 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Today we will study three specific illustrations of God’s judgment related to false teachers so that we would learn how severely God promises to punish them. May we hear what God says about this important subject and pray for protection in the church for the glory of God.

2 Peter 2:4–10 (Listen)

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.

Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones,

(ESV)
