v1-9 - In chapter 1, Peter emphasized the importance of relying upon the prophetic Word of God.
But not all who claim to be prophets of God are what they claim to be.
Although you need to be aware of them, and always remain on guard for unbiblical teaching, be assured that God will rescue the godly and bring these liars to justice.
v10-22 - This passage is a long and brutal takedown of people "who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority (v10)."
Peter pulls out all of the stops in the second half of this chapter, comparing unrepentant sinners to:
'unreasoning animals' (v12),
a Hebrew turncoat whose sin was rebuked by an unreasoning animal (v15-16),
He finishes with two proverbs showing sinners in the most disgusting way possible:
a dog eating its own vomit
and a washed sow rolling in the [mud].
Peter doesn't use the 'G rated' word the translations do in v22.
Interestingly, the proverb about the dogs comes from Proverbs 26:11, but the proverb about the sow is an ancient Greek proverb.
Even pagans can sense the disgusting filth of sin.
The sexual revolution that started in the 60's is now over half a century old. The idea was to break free from the constraints forced upon people by the prudish standards of Western Civilization, or more specifically, Biblical Christianity.<
