Jude (The Daily Walk Bible).
Jude wanted to write about what Jesus Christ had done for them, but had to change topics. False teachers had infiltrated the church, and he felt the duty to warn them.
How do we identify false teachers? Jude gives the following characteristics to watch for: they deemphasize the word of God (8), they are sexually impure (4, 8, 19), they reject God’s authority (8), they lack spiritual wisdom (19), they lack faith, they are greedy (12), they are deceitful, they are selfish, they are arrogant (16), and they cause divisions (16). They are useless!
Why would anyone follow them? Because they “flatter others to get favors in return” (16). It’s an age old story that we still see happening in the church today. Be careful!
