BACKSLIDERS BE WARNED

2 Peter 2:12-17
This passage of scripture is describing the end of those who backslide and leave their first love.

1. DOMINATED BY THEIR FLESH
“But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed,

2. SPEAK EVIL FROM IGNORANCE
“speak evil of the things they do not understand,”

3. THEIR OWN CORRUPTION WILL DESTROY THEM
“and will utterly perish in their own corruption,

4. THEY WILL RECEIVE THE WAGES OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
“and will receive the wages of unrighteousness,”

5. THEY OPENLY PARADE THEIR SIN
“as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime.”

6. THEY ATTEND CHURCH LOOKING FOR PREY
“They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls.”

7. THEY HAVE TRAINED THEIR HEART IN COVETOUSNESS
“They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.”

8. THEY LOVE THE WAGES OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
“They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;”

9. THEY IGNORE THE VOICE OF GOD
“but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet.”

10. THEY ARE EMPTY OF LIFE AND DESTINED FOR DARKNESS
“These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.”

11. THEIR LATTER END IS WORSE
2 Peter 2.20
“For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.”

PLEASE REPENT AND RETURN TO THE LOVE OF GOD
