Read Introduction to 2 Peter

 

“And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.”

 

because of whom

“Whom” are these false teachers.  The blight of false doctrine bedevils Christendom throughout the world. For every true teacher such as Paul or Peter there are many false counterparts. Sometimes phonies who disseminate diabolical doctrine are more impressive and charismatic than genuine teachers of the Word. 

the way of truth

Note the term “way” in other texts:

Ac 16:17 “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.”

Ac 18: 26 “So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.”

Ro 3:17 “And the way of peace they have not known.”

PRINCIPLE: 

There is only one truth and Christianity is that truth and way to heaven.

APPLICATION: 

People do not want to hear there is only one way to heaven. That sounds too dogmatic and exclusive to them. However, the Bible teaches plainly that Jesus is the only way to heaven. 

You may say that “That sounds like discrimination to me.” If we do not accept God’s way of salvation, this is discrimination against God. God’s character demands that all sin be paid by Jesus’ death on the cross. He must do this because that is the only way He can be true to His character and yet accept us into His heaven. If we reject this, we discriminate against Him!

Have you bought into the propaganda that there are many ways to God? Or, will you accept that Jesus’ death for your sins is the only way to heaven? Go to this site if you wish to become a Christian: http://versebyversecommentary.com/articles/how-to-become-a-christian-2/
