Slandering the Angels (Jude) (Welwyn Commentary Series)

John Benton

Slandering the Angels (Jude) (Welwyn Commentary Series)

John Benton

$17.99

Paperback

In a society where the claim that we can know absolute truth is dismissed as ridiculous, and moral standards are disregarded if they interfere with personal enjoyment, the church is under threat in two ways. Tired of swimming against the tide, it can be tempted to throw away its commitment to biblical standards of behaviour and to the uniqueness of Christ as the only Lord and Saviour in the quest for social acceptability. At the same time, in a longing to see God at work in revival and the desire to be seen to be successful, Christians may be open to accept anything that causes a sensation and attracts a crowd, even if it departs from the biblical gospel.

The epistle of Jude was written to combat false teaching which in many ways encapsulates all the worst dangers to the church and the biblical gospel today. John Benton urges his readers to regain Jude's vision of contending for the faith, not just at the intellectual level, but at the level of responsible Christian living and practical, loving Christianity for those led astray.

John Benton is the pastor of Chertsey Street Baptist Church, Guildford, England, and the author of several books, including two other titles in the Welwyn Commentary Series, Losing Touch With The Living God (Malachi), and Straightening Out The Self-centred Church (Titus).
