In chapter three, Peter converges on a specific example of false teachers — a denial of Christ’s return to judge the world. Because they reveled in lawlessness and pursued lustful desires, they denied any doctrine which would hold them accountable for their actions. In their mind, if Christ does not return, there will be no judgment upon them. Therefore, as a shepherd, Peter urges his sheep to be mindful — mindful of the Scripture and mindful of the scoffers.
