MORNINGTIME 2348
 
But chiefly THEM THAT WALK AFTER THE FLESH in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings WHILE THEY FEAST WITH YOU; Having eyes full of adultery, and THAT CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way....   For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, THOSE THAT WERE CLEAN ESCAPED FROM THEM who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 2 Peter 2:10, 12-15, 18-20. Are people saved "Through the Knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ"? Most emphatically "NO", they are not saved "through the knowledge of Christ", BUT BY BELIEVING IN, FOLLOWING, AND OBEYING the Lord Jesus Christ. "Knowledge of", is all in your head. "Knowledge of" means nothing until you mix it with Faith, AND FOLLOW CHRIST.   These verses speak of Deceivers, and suckers. Suckers will fall for anything because they don't Believe ANYTHING. They may come close to Christ, (like Judas), but never INTO Christ and Christ in them. These are not Christians, but religious  zealots, who play around the fringes of Christ. Never Saved, never to, Be Blessed.
