“For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error.” 2 Peter 2:18 (ESV)
This verse makes me think of the modern art of “preaching by prancing” which is when the preacher leaves the Bible to roam the stage with his own rambling thoughts. Oratory skills may move the masses to emotion but only the word of God can move a man or women to faith in God. Emotions don’t last, but faith does. Let us be like the Bereans of Acts 17:11 who not only listened to the Apostle Paul’s teaching, but also compared it to Scripture to test the things that he taught!
