It can happen to you without intention. That cynicism creeps in. About others. About politics. About church. About God. About life. It wasn’t your purpose. But repeatedly you were disappointed. And then it simply seemed to happen to you. You begin to feel and think in a cynical way. Upcoming Sunday we learn more about this theme. In II Peter 3, Peter shows that he is aware that those to whom he writes will live in an atmosphere wherein everything they learnt about Jesus seems to be incredible. Even if they try to hold fast to their convictions, the critical questions they get, might creep in and undermine their stability in faith. However, Peter shows there is a wonderful way out.
