New Testament

II Peter

1 : virtues to seek; Christ's glory Peter witnessed;
2 : warning against false teachers - such will perish;
3 : promise of Christ's return will be ridiculed
   in the last days, but His day will come - don't be fooled.

The second letter of the apostle Peter was written to encourage believers and combat the rise of certain false teachers in the church. From 2 Peter 2 we learn that these false ones had a licentious lifestyle, and from 2 Peter 3 we learn that they were denying the second coming of the Lord; these issues are addressed.
