You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand,
take care that you are not carried away with the error
of lawless people and lose your own stability.
2 Pet 3:17
False teaching is incompatible with the gospel. Genuine Christians can have legitimate disagreements with fellow believers in areas that don’t compromise the gospel: modes of baptism, details on prophecy, church government, etc. But we must agree on the basics – the gospel itself. Peter is warning us of heresy. Doctrinal error that leads to eternal judgment. Love doesn’t hide the truth. Love protects. If you love your kids, you’ll warn them about playing in the street. The Christian life isn’t a playground – it’s a battleground. Wolves are constantly threatening God’s flock. Paul warned the Ephesian elders. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock … Therefore be alert,
Ac 20:29-31. Shepherds must warn sheep. It’s not popular but it must be done. Spiritual errors today are abundant – even within the professing church. Be warned.
This is what Justin Peters is coming to do – to warn us of the false teaching connected with the health-wealth-and-prosperity gospel. The conference will be online yes, but we all know one gets more out of something like this when you are in actual attendance. We begin Friday at 6:30pm. Saturday begins at 8:30am and we’ll be finished by 12:30pm. We don’t want you to lose your stability. Take the time to be forewarned about these dangers. If you haven’t requested a seat, do so today.
