Today's Celebrity Evangelical Leaders Are False Teachers: here's why
2Pe 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
What did they teach falsely about and thus proved to deny the lordship of the Lord they claimed?
Genesis: Noah, the Flood, the establishment of the rainbow's righteous sign, the sexual deviancy of Sodom, Gormorrah and the surrounding cities.
Their Evangelical progeny today don't respond the way righteous Lot did, to such unnatural desires (corrupt DESIRES of the flesh" as v. 10 states) of sodomy:
2Pe 2:7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men
2Pe 2:8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day with their lawless deeds),
Today they not only tolerate sodomy, they redefine it's sinfulness as a sin "common to man", which it isn't. They aren't tortured in their souls because of the heinous wicked desires and it's behavior.
2Pe 2:9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,
2Pe 2:10 and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt DESIRES and DESPISE authority. Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties,
Such heresies as tolerance and redefining of the desires of sodomy which God says is unnatural and corrupt; denial of the sound doctrine of Creation, Total Depravity, the Flood, the Fall, the historicity of Genesis, are evident in their fruit: immorality, impurity, sensuality, enmity, strife, jealous, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, and factions (Gal. 5:19-20). Notice, too that Peter and Paul shows the distinction between the godly and the righteous versus the ungodly and the unprincipled. There's no gray area here, no multiple qualifications, no appeal to motives of love and social justice. To see what they are doing, go here, here, here, and here.
