There are two paths which may be tempting when approaching the damage of a false teacher. One is to question whether there will be justice for the people they have hurt. Two is to question whether there will be justice for them. On this passage, Peter quickly touches on both types of questions by following the proven practice of returning to looking for God’s character within scripture. In it, he highlights some stories that typify the way in which God responds to these types of threats. Interestingly, these are not small threats but large world changing threats with large and world changing consequences. In these times, God meets mankind with two things. First there is consequence for the wicked and those supporting them. Second, there is mercy and hope for the righteous. It should be noted that the man chosen to display righteousness is Lot. Lot was not, by any means, a pillar of righteous perfection, but Peter spoke to the agony of his heart. In cases like these, God always provides.
2 PETER 2:4-9
