2 Pet 2:20–22

2:20–22 The false teachers rather than those who “are barely escaping” (v. 18) are probably in view. These false teachers apparently professed to be Christians, but their return to their old sinful way of life showed that their knowledge of Christ and the way of righteousness was only superficial (v. 1 note).
