Bible: Be diligent because the unlearned and unstable do not understand and fall unto their own destruction; and are led away by the error of the wicked

How long simple ones, who hate knowledge, will you love simplicity while the scorners delight in their scorning–Proverbs

Notice these verses do NOT say to be spoon-fed by your pastor (implying that pastors, as well as others teaching, can be wicked and lead persons away by error—Peter wrote this, not me).  These verses say for each of us individually to be diligent in order to avoid our own destruction by being led away with the error of the wicked.  Richard Duke

2 Peter 3:

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
