last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is
these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you,
beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy
Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord
Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt;
save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear,
hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
Greetings beloved in God the Father. Jude was eager to write to the early Christians,
to appeal to them to contend for the faith and to warn them about false prophets
and scoffers. His words are just as
urgent today – be on your guard! Keep digging
deeper into Scripture, keep on praying, be merciful on doubt and be ready and
willing to help those who are faltering.
