The Rise And Fall Of The False Teachers

11 while angels, though greater than they in might and power, do not bring any insulting accusation against such in the presence of the Lord. 12 But these men, like brute beasts, created (with their natural instincts) 13 being doomed to receive a requital for their guilt. They reckon it pleasure to feast daintily in broad daylight. They are spots and blemishes, while feeding luxuriously at their love-feasts, and banqueting with you.
