Apostasy comes from the Greek word "apostasia" and literally means "a departure or defection from the truth." It is translated in the King James Version, "a falling away" (2 Thessalonians 2:3). In our last session, we looked at what apostates do and what they choose not to believe. In today's session, we will look at who they are, what they fail to accomplish and what we must do. Jude provides for us three examples of those who departed from the clear teaching of the Word of God - Cain, Balaam and Korah. Jude quotes from the writings of Enoch to reveal the judgment that will come upon those who depart from the truth and are considered "ungodly." Jude recognized the importance of our knowing this information that we might stay true to "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
