If you were facing death in the near future, and you could write one last letter to people that you love, what would you write? You would probably fill the pages with sentimentality, encouragement, and well-wishes.
Well, when the apostle Peter had a chance to write such a letter, he included a little bit of that, but with the majority of his letter, he took a completely different approach: addressing false teachers. As we walk through 2 Peter this Sunday, I think we will better understand why that was on the apostle’s mind. And we will be better prepared to respond to false teachings that linger still to this day.
