Context Readings

Apostates: Past And Present

6 He has also held in eternal chains those angels who did not keep their own position but abandoned their assigned place. They are held in deepest darkness for judgment on the great day. 7 Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities near them, which like them committed sexual sins and pursued homosexual activities, serve as an example of the punishment of eternal fire. 8 In a similar way, these dreamers also defile their flesh, reject the Lord's authority, and slander his glorious beings.
