How False Teachers See Themselves

Sharing Options

[Speaking of 2 Pet. 3:15-16] “The word translated as wrest here is streblao, which refers to putting something on the rack and twisting it out of all recognition. Of course, those who are occupied in this activity do not themselves describe it this way. They do not advertise their seminars as being taught by ignorant and unstable people. Peter’s statement here is perhaps a little biased and hidebound. Their impression on their most helpful activity is that they are actually making things straight. But are they right?” (“The Loveliness of Orthodoxy” in Bound Only Once, p. 18).
