On Mocking Creation Ex Nihilo and the Global Flood


Remarkably, many (even professing Christians) today mock the view that God created the world by his word (out of nothing) and that there was a global flood of judgment on the earth, as 2 Peter 3:3–6 so clearly predicted thousands of years ago that this would be indicative of the end of the age when people would ridicule our hope in Jesus’ return, the final judgment, and the restoration of the creation:

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water.
