Bible: 2 Peter 3:1-4

The False Teachers’ Denial of the Lord’s Return

3:1 Dear friends, this is already the second letter I have written 1  you, in which 2  I am trying to stir up 3  your pure mind by way of reminder: 3:2 I want you to recall 4  both 5  the predictions 6  foretold by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles. 7  3:3 Above all, understand this: 8  In the last days blatant scoffers 9  will come, being propelled by their own evil urges 10  3:4 and saying, 11 Where is his promised return? 12  For ever since 13  our ancestors 14  died, 15  all things have continued as they were 16  from the beginning of creation.”
