Today, many leaders with the ability to influence the masses for Jesus Christ are faltering in their ways and many do not see or know the falling way is right before them. They do not recognize that the leader has gone off the beaten path of life into the path of sin – deceiving and being deceived. They are inviting the masses to come and learn from teachers who do not believe in nor know Jesus Christ. Because of the lack of study, the error is unrealized. That the easy route is leading further and further from Christ, who will provide what’s necessary to make it in a world filled with sin.
The conclusion of the whole matter is this. The book of Jude tells us about the day we are living in, which is not a new day on earth. It is only new to this generation. Jude warns us to watch and not ignore those who come into our love feasts (gatherings) speaking eloquently, yet they are deceivers. In II Timothy 3 Paul provides and adequate description of our day, but his admonishment was to continue in Christ. (Click here to read The Encouragement Newsletter “Continue”) One of the major things we are to do is remain true to Christ. Don’t listen to this new gospel that is taking the hearts of people by the droves and turning them from Christ. How can you and I remain true? Take responsibility for your own spiritual growth. Develop the ability to discern when even the most eloquent and convincing in speech is going off or is just off in their preaching, teaching, music, ministry, etc. - even when the masses are following. Do as Acts 2:40 - “Then Peter continued preaching for a long time, strongly urging all his listeners, "Save yourselves from this crooked generation!"
