2 Peter : Intolerance (4)

  1. The basic message of Christianity is "believe or be damned" and from this flows intolerance toward all non-Christians. But, as these verses show, Christian intolerance is often directed toward believers as well. Each group of Christians accuses the others of being "false teachers" of "damnable heresies" who will soon be damned to hell. 2:1-3
  2. "Turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes" 2:6
  3. God drowned everyone else on earth except for Noah and his family. 2:5, 3:6
  4. God will set the entire earth on fire so that he can burn non-believers to death. 3:7
