What if someone knows the truth and turns away from it? Surely, they are worse off than they were before. This is the idea on which 2 Peter 2:20–3:2 postulates.
Scripture affirms that those who have knowledge of the truth must use that gift wisely because God will hold them accountable for it. Pastor Chuck Swindoll reminds believers of the centrality of biblical truth and the necessity to handle it responsibly.
