Even though it’s so short, 2 Peter has some pretty bold statements about some prettery long standing debates within Christianity. I wonder if I never noticed these before because it’s a short book, easy to skip over.
I wonder how the predestination folks respond to : “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
If in fact our eternal destination is predestined, it would seem like God ought to know this fact. And if God knows, why would He delay the end of the world so that no one perishes. If who perishes and who doesn’t is a done deal, how long the universe is around is irrelevant.
