They communicate of fake doctrines and those that educate them as though they really think that eternity hangs within the stability and that God, faraway from shrugging his shoulders like an outstanding relativist, takes the concerns of fact and religious authority very heavily. at the present time the fiery, unapologetic language of two Peter and Jude can open our eyes to stark religious realities. Like few different apostolic writings, those letters shake us unsleeping to the very important necessity of embracing the real gospel and transmitting it undistorted. The message is as countercultural as attainable, and profoundly timely.
