In these last times, there are many false teachers among us who bring in destructive heresies, denying the Lord, 2 Peter 2:1. Their ways are of destruction, they blasphemy the truth and by covetousness exploit with deceptive words, 2 Peter 2:2-3. Many of these go after the way of Balaam, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, 2 Peter 2:15, which is the willingness to manipulate Christians into […]

Crowns of the Saints Crown of Righteousness

Those loving His appearance will live a life that guards His commandments, which is to love other saints (John 13:34). Living a life of love towards other saints will result in a life that rejects the shameful things, denies ungodliness, rejects the desires of the world, focus on the way things really are, has a conduct showing we are taking God at His word and living a life that is godly and righteous by manifesting who we are in Christ.
