America is NOT EXEMPT from God's warnings to stay
within his moral boundaries!
2 Peter 2 King James Version (KJV)
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall
be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring
upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the
way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise
of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
4 For if God spared
not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world
of the ungodly;
turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that
after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul
from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out
of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly
them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they
are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing
accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed,
speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes,
sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot
cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those
that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves
are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are
again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had
been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment
delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog
is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
