Justification is not “just as if I’d” never sinned. It’s much more than that. Justification is the work of Jesus Christ to declare you righteous. Let’s learn together in episode 10 of Why We Believe What We Believe.
In 2 Peter Chapter 2, we studied a clear warning against false teaching and immorality. Now Peter addresses his audience as a pastor, encouraging his readers to remember God’s word in the face of coming opposition and mockers’ denial of Christ’s return.
The Detailed Description and Destruction of False Teachers. Christianity requires constant re-education. We’re not teaching something new; rather we are re-educating, re-affirming, reminding, and teaching others who have yet to learn.
Peter explains God’s judicial dealings with three well known historical stories and reminds readers that God judges justly. He uses examples that his audience would’ve been familiar with to display both God’s righteous judgment and God’s deliverance of the righteous.
Like Peter’s readers, we live in a time of darkness, an unrighteous and ungodly world, rife with immorality, corruption and people who despise authority. Interesting that this was written some 1,950-some years ago!
Do you have to believe in hell to be a Christian? Are non-believers given an opportunity to trust Christ after death? What about people who never hear the name of Jesus? Does the book of Leviticus apply to our lives today? How could Jesus forgive sins before dying on the cross? Are generational curses real and how do we fight Satan and his demons? You asked.
