In 2 Peter 2:17-22 Peter continues his description of the false teachers and transitions into describing the state of those who have fallen prey to their errors. Instead of providing living water through the preaching of the gospel they are waterless springs. Instead of helping people get grounded in the truth of the gospel, they are mists driven by storms. Like skilled fishermen they lure the unsuspecting into their errors using sexual immorality and the empty promise of freedom.
Those who once professed faith in Christ but have now embraced the false teaching are in a dangerous position. Because they know the truth and have departed from it are in a worse state than unbelievers. They are like dogs who return to their vomit and pigs who wallow in the mud.
