2 Timothy 3

Have ever found yourself considering that the times we live in are uniquely immoral and rebellious with non-believers living terrible lives of sin?  Often, we hear people blame today’s “society” for this sinful nature. But when you read Paul’s instructions to Timothy you see that these times have been with the church from the beginning – they are not unique and we have no basis to blame today’s “society.”

2 Timothy 3: But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

And Paul’s instruction to the church remain the same – stay away from and “have nothing to do” (become entrapped” with the behavior of these people.
