Are These Dangerous Times?

Share |
Are we living in perilous times? My friend Cheryl and I had a lively and much needed discussion today about this question. Of course you have to decide for yourself, but we came to the conclusion (from some very wise pastors and our own experiences) that these are indeed dangerous times. It takes a great deal of insight, knowledge, and wisdom to walk in the light and to find people who walk in truth, we concluded. I encourage you to read these words from the Bible and have a discussion with somebody you respect.

2 Timothy 3:1-9
(King James version)

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.


Cheryl,
Hold it down on the West Coast sister and I'll handle the East!

We are definately in dangerous times, I dare say perilous times. But the sad thing is people don't seem to notice or care.
The world better wake up...
