Dec. 25, 2012 Jude (5-6)

The Lost Boys met on Christmas morning and read Jude, the whole book. (at least one chapter) It is an interesting book in which Jude starts with the statement that he is a slave to Jesus Christ. He then tells the story of the people of Israel in a somewhat off-beat manner. He has some memorable phrases such as “Fight with all you have in you for this faith entrusted to us as a gift to guard and cherish.” Then he goes on with the history. He warns of false prophets, who appear he says beneath their pious skin are shameless scoundrels. No difference between some people tat that time and some people today. At another point, he talks of these false prophets who are warts on your love feasts as you worship and eat together. “They’re giving you a black eye — carousing shamelessly, grabbing every that isn’t nailed down.” these words are from the Message interpretation of the Bible. He finishes by urging the believers to have faith in Jesus Christ and Him only. the rock of our faith.
