The Bible tells us there is nothing new under the sun, and indeed, the Book of Jude confirms that, showing the problems in the church then and today.
- The faith Christians have is entrusted to us by God (Jude:4)
- There are ungodly people, in the Church, who have corrupted the grace of God so that people feel they can continue sinning and God will have no problem with it (Jude:4b)
- The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah serves as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire (Jude:7)
- There are lots of false prophets who claim to have prophetic dreams which are really deceptions (Jude 8)
- Many leaders go into spiritual warfare in their own strength (such as declaring and decreeing things of their own opinion and not with understanding), and it is dangerous (Jude:10)
- Many leaders are not shepherds, but instead use Christianity for profit. They are useless to Christianity and hell is reserved for them (Jude:11)
- Many leaders are scoffers of the true believer because they follow their own ungodly desires. They do not have the Spirit of God (Jude:18)
