But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their licentiousness, and because of them the way of truth will be reviled.
And in their greed they will exploit you with false words; from of old their condemnation has not been idle, and their destruction has not been asleep.
