2 Peter 1:8; 2 Peter 2:19; 2 Peter 3:11

8 For if these things be in you, and abound , they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
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 .
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved , what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
