2 Peter 2:19 (NLT)
They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.
- I don't know who Peter is outing here so vehemently. I'm sure a good bible commentary will have some ideas. There are certainly false teachers around today who come to mind.
Buried in this powerful condemnation is an important little parable: "You are a slave to whatever controls you." That's well worth keeping in mind in any era.
