Sunday Sermon Series Second Peter 2:17-22

Hello everybody. I hope you are all well. Today I have a drawing from last Sunday (June 12, 2022). The message was about false teachers, how to spot them, and what God thinks of them. You can listen to it here.

Here we see Jesus calling out the false teacher's lies, using scripture (as we are to do) to check what is being preached. A generic crowd looms in the darkened sanctuary. The false teacher is not supposed to look like anyone, nor are the people in the audience.

Pastor Jake Gamble mentioned that Jesus is the living water (as he tells us in the story of the Samaritan woman at the well, John 4:1-40) and that here Peter tells us "...are waterless springs and mist driven by a storm." In other words they do not satisfy our thirst. Only Jesus does that. The empty, hollow promises of false teachers do not satisfy, and in the end doom you. They suggest that you can add Jesus to your life, or that you can live however you want and then profess Jesus. That isn't what the Bible tells us.

Parts of this drawing are rougher than usual(the crowd in the darkness in particular), and some parts are finished. I like the balance of the light on Jesus side, and the darkness in the "world." I don't usually do scrolls for scripture. Usually I draw a Bible because it's what I'm used to. I can't wait to see what Jesus has to say about different versions of the Bible.

This pencil sketch was done with a Pentel .7mm P207 mechanical pencil in a Pentalic Sketchbook on 70lb paper. I hope you enjoyed this post, and that it encouraged you, made you think, or challenged you, and that you will read more about Peter's final letter to the church in 2nd Peter. God bless you, and have a great day! --Ryan
