Context Readings

The Rise And Fall Of The False Teachers

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, as there shall be also among you false teachers, who shall bring in by the bye destructive heresies, and deny the master that bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction; 2 and many shall follow their dissolute ways, through whom the way of the truth shall be blasphemed. 3 And through covetousness, with well-turned words, will they make merchandise of you: for whom judgment of old is not idle, and their destruction slumbers not.
