The apostle Peter gave a very solemn warning to the readers in 2 Peter 2:1. He said, “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”. Peter taught the readers that false prophets and teachers will be part and parcel of the Christian community.
We are all time travelers in a sense as we exist in time. However, the challenge is that our time travelling is unidirectional, namely, we can only go forward in time but never able to return back to the past to amend our episodes. This makes time travelling perilous because it means that we only pass each time marker but once. We cannot go back to a missed graduation or undo a bungled careless action.
“As You sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.”
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
(1 John 4:1)
“LORD, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations” (Psalm 90:1)
“Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
