#197 Eight Descriptions of Those That Harm Christians
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred-ninety-seven of this series, Eight Descriptions of Those That Harm Christians.
In the small Book of Jude, Jude states in his warning against false teachers that those who harm Christians are in the church. Most Christians today understand they need to be careful of those outside the church. But, the Bible spends a lot of time warning about those in the church.
Eight Descriptions of Those That Harm Christians:
- Like hidden Reefs who will create a wreck of your faith.
- Shepherds or church leaders that teach only for gain.
- Like waterless clouds which are those that boast of gifts they do not have, and who are swept along by winds, which describes their unfaithfulness.
- Like fruitless trees in late autumn who produce no fruit for the Kingdom.
- Like wild waves of the sea, these are those who create chaos.
- Like wandering stars and these are those who are satanically driven and reserved for Hell.
- Grumblers and malcontents are complainers who constantly complain, and follow their own sinful desires.
- Loudmouth boasters are those that entice others into sensual pleasures.
The important thing to note is the followers follow these teachers not because they are misled, but because they like what these teachers teach. Their teaching permits sensual desires. A life lived abundantly is not fulfilling your own desires. Jesus came to be a servant. Trust God and God will fulfill every promise for your life in this world and the next.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Jud 12 These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; Jud 13 wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever.
Jud 16 These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own sinful desires; they are loud-mouthed boasters, showing favoritism to gain advantage.
