Jude wants to outfit us with spiritual sonar. Even in the church, where we feel we have a safe harbor, there may be dangers below the surface. In his letter Jude calls them "hidden reefs."

Jude has some other metaphors for them, as well - or, as Jim calls them, Pictures of the Apostate. He opens the lesson with prayer.
