2 Peter 2 Part 1–No False Teachers Allowed

God has never tolerated Heresy. From the time of Lucifer, when He took a third of the angelic host in rebellion, God has dealt directly with those that would choose evil over God. God cast angels out of Heaven, destroyed most of mankind by the flood.  He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and has dealt with false teachers and cults.  God loves His people and wants to be in a relationship with them. He will not, tolerate that relationship, however, if it is not based on faith and trust in Him. God is a gentleman.  He will not force His way into folk’s lives. He is also, however, not weak.  He does not settle for co-leadership. Either Christ leads and Christians submit to his leadership, or run their own lives.  He does not do a Hybrid version. 
 
In our lives, we try so hard, oftentimes, to help God out. Rather than wait on His timing and leadership; we take matters into our own hands.  Like the false teachers of old, we try to change the message ever so slightly to allow us to manage our lives by committee with God.  Simply put, God does not allow that.  Either we allow him to lead, or we walk on our own and suffer the consequence of running our own show. If we will allow Christ to lead and follow His truth; then, He will give us an abundant life of purpose and blessing.
 
God Bless You

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,[a] putting them in chains of darkness[b] to be held for judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others; if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment. 10 This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh[c] and despise authority.
