Dear friends, this is now the second of two letters I am writing to you, in which I have been trying to stimulate your pure minds by reminding you
The one who has innocent hands and a pure heart; the person who does not delight in what is false and does not swear an oath deceitfully.
I have already warned those who sinned previously and all the rest. Although I am absent now, I am warning them as I did on my second visit: If I come back, I will not spare you,
Do not ordain anyone hastily. Do not participate in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
For this reason, I am reminding you to fan into flames the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands.
From: Peter, an apostle of Jesus, the Messiah.
Now that you have obeyed the truth and have purified your souls to love your brothers sincerely, you must love one another intensely and with a pure heart.
Therefore, I intend to keep on reminding you about these things, even though you already know them and are firmly established in the truth that you now have.
