2 Peter 3
The apostle declareth it to be the design of both his epistles to remind the brethren of Christ's coming to judgment, in opposition to scoffers. No argument can be drawn against it from the delay, which is designed to leave men room for repentance. He describeth the day of the Lord, and exhorteth to holiness of life in expectation of it. He sheweth that Paul had taught the same in his epistles: and concludeth with advice to beware of seduction, and to grow in Christian grace and knowledge.
