  1. Duties of Believers

    by , 1 Day Ago at 06:26 PM (Island Brow Blog)
    Jude wrote his epistle near the middle to late first century. He wrote during a time when false teachers had already infiltrated the church and were promoting their false gospel. At the end of his short letter, he presents a strategy to the believers for avoiding apostasy and contending for the faith (Jude 3). You and I are still faced with the threat of false teachers.

    The Apostle John wrote to the churches of the Asia region over which he exercised Apostolic authority. To the believers in those churches he issued a command, followed by 3 reasons for that command:

    Do not love the world or the things in the world (1 John 2:15a)

    C.S. Lewis wrote, "Make no mistake about it: pride is the great sin. It is the devil's most effective and destructive tool."

    John R.W. Stott said, "Pride is your greatest enemy, humility is your greatest friend."

    Jonathan Edwards wrote, "Spiritual pride is the main spring or at least the main support of all other errors. Until this disease is cured, medicines are applied in vain to heal all other diseases."
