Read Introduction to 2 Peter

 

…as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

 

as they do also the rest of the Scriptures

Unstable people not only distort Paul’s doctrine but they distort other writers of the Bible as well. 

Note that Peter regards Paul’s writing as “Scriptures.”  The Bible is the only book on earth written by God.  It is the only book that God inspired and it is the only book ever written that does not have even one error within its pages.  We build our faith on an infallible book. 

Scholars critical of the Bible pit Peter against Paul.  They say that Peter was a legalist and Paul preached grace.  They say the two apostles hold to different theologies.  This verse gives a lie to that thinking. 

PRINCIPLE:

The Bible is the only infallible book on earth.

APPLICATION:

There are no infallible people.  Christian leaders are fallible.  The infallibility of Scripture is the reason it sustained 2000 years of attacks upon it.  More people have burned Bibles than any other book on earth.  God has preserved the Bible through all of this.  That is a miracle in itself.
