The goal of 2 Peter is to restore confidence and order to the Church. It offers an expansive vision of hope for the whole world and challenges believers to examine their everyday lives.
He issues two warnings against corrupt teachers who are leading the Christian communities astray with their way of life and distorted theology.
Peter addresses their objections to the reality of Jesus' resurrection and the final judgment. He reminds Christians that their hope is in God. In His time on the Day of the Lord, He will expose evil and injustice and remove it to make way for a new heaven and earth that's permeated with righteousness, God's love and people who know and love God and their neighbors.
