Jude was writing to those who were teaching false; teaching in the Church and Jude warns those who turn away from Christ yet those who seek to know God are example of apostasy. The epistle of Jude was written to help the Christians to follow after the true and living God. Thus, not to be deceive by lies, to live a life of sin and still claim to be a follower of God is a sin. Jude gives a warning to those who follow after these false teaching.
