“Fake news” has been around a long time and it’s a certain source of confusion and chaos. In Bible times, false prophets, pedaled fake news that plagued the people of Israel. False prophets do the same in the church today.Here’s what Peter wrote – There were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. (2 Peter 2:1)
Peter was concerned about false teachers for at least two reasons. They were causing chaos in the church and they were easily leading the biblically illiterate away from the truth. Sadly, both of these things are still happening in the church today!
Before Sunday, I hope you’ll take the time to familiarize yourself with 2 Peter 2. You’ll read twenty-two action packed verses depicting the chaos caused by the false teachers and their fake news.
On Sunday, we’ll learn how to quickly distinguish between true Christianity and fake Christianity. I hope to see you in-person or online!
