2 Peter 2.17, 18 17 These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. 18 For when they speak great swelling wordsof emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who…

Madness!

2 Peter 2.2, 3 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

False Prophets
