I’m so glad we’re back finishing up our inductive study in the Book of Jude. This is a great book, full of excellent teaching about false teachers and how to identify them.

How Simple Questions Reveal Big Truths {Part 2}

We’re back again to continue our study in the Book of Jude. Jude wasn’t an apostle nor was he a pillar of the early church but he had to speak up. He had to warn the believers of what was happening in their midst. Couldn’t they see what was happening? Didn’t they realize who was among them?
