There’s No Point In Trying to Set Dates…

But it has to be admitted- this sounds like a pretty up to date description of people, don’t you think?

You may be quite sure that in the last days there will be some difficult times. People will be self-centred and avaricious, boastful, arrogant and rude; disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious; heartless and intractable; they will be slanderers, profligates, savages and enemies of everything that is good;  they will be treacherous and reckless and demented by pride, preferring their own pleasure to God.  They will keep up the outward appearance of religion but will have rejected the inner power of it. Keep away from people like that.

Of the same kind, too, are those men who insinuate themselves into families in order to get influence over silly women who are obsessed with their sins and follow one craze after another, always seeking learning, but unable ever to come to knowledge of the truth.

Just as Jannes and Jambres defied Moses, so these men defy the truth, their minds corrupt and their faith spurious.  But they will not be able to go on much longer: their folly, like that of the other two, must become obvious to everybody.  (2 Tim. 3:1-9)
