Peter states in 2 Peter 2:3 that the false teachers are doomed to judgment — “their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.” While verse three served as the final warning of the previous section, it also is the springboard for what comes next. Consider the following logic. Because the false teacher deliberately misleads others, God will, without doubt, judge them. God’s judgment of false teachers is absolute because God routinely judged the wicked throughout history. Thus, in 2 Peter 2:4-9, Peter presents three examples of God’s judgment in the past.
