A. The Danger of Disobeying

1. It is a dangerous thing to willfully and

knowingly transgress the Word of God

(James 4:17) “therefore, to him who

knows to do good and does not do it, to

him it is sin.”

2. It is equally as dangerous to lead others

in the same transgression (2 Peter 2:1-3)

“But there were also false prophets among

the people, even as there will be false

teachers among you, who will secretly

bring in destructive heresies, even denying

the Lord who bought them, and bring on

themselves swift destruction. And many will

follow their destructive ways, because of

whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

By covetousness they will exploit you with

deceptive words… and their destruction does

not slumber.”
