2 Peter 3:3-7 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this `coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
Peter’s proof that things don’t always continue just the same (‘uniformitarianism’) are the things that men scoff about most today:
1. Creation by God 4. The Life of Jesus
2. The Fall of man 5. The Second Coming of Jesus
3. The worldwide Flood in Noah’s day
