There are people in the world today who are looking for love and a place to belong. Sometimes these people follow a false teacher. Soon they are obeying rules that are not from the Bible and living like slaves. This shows us that we need to be very careful to follow and trust true Christian leaders. A true Christian leader teaches God’s message in the right way and for the right reason.
Peter wrote a letter to some Christians. He told them about false teachers. These false teachers taught things that were wrong. But their followers did not know they were wrong. These followers became slaves to the false teacher. Peter gave a warning in 2 Peter 2:3. “These false teachers only want your money. So they will use you by telling you things that are not true. But the judgment against these false teachers has been ready for a long time. And they will not escape God who will destroy them.”
True teachers of God’s Word will give us hope and peace. They will teach from the Bible and help us understand it. They will lead us to a closer relationship with God.
Beware of false teachers today. Make sure that you are learning from God’s Word. Ask God to protect you and keep you safe.
