II Peter 3:15-16 ” Just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.”

From the very beginning man has misinterpreted and distorted the Word of God. Jeremiah warned of false teachers & prophecies in Jeremiah 23:36…that every man’s words becomes his own (not God’s) and so man distorts the words of the living God. Psalm 56:5 speaks of man twisting God’s Words, or changing their meaning. In these verses, Peter is reassuring his readers that Paul’s writings, while they may not be easy to understand or comprehend without careful study, were inspired and authoritative writings. And instead, it was the false teachers that were perverting his writings. But with a personal solid foundation of faith, Peter was telling them that these mysteries would be unveiled.
