When warning his readers against false teachers, Peter charges the false teachers with following “the way of Balaam.” But what was it about Balaam that leads not only Peter, but Jude in his letter and Jesus in Revelation to use him as an example of false teaching and desire for ill-gotten gain?
In this sermon we’ll examine the way of Balaam under three headings:
- His Enticement — What motivated Balaam?
- His Enterprise — What did he do try to gain what he wanted?
- He Effect — What was the result for Balaam and others?
