"Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good." 2Timothy 3:2
IN JESUS TODAY!
Does any of this sound familiar? As time goes by these become more prevalent! In the last days perilous times shall come. We are in perilous times, with the lack of natural affection. What is natural affection? These days natural affection has turned into immoral behavior. For example if you display natural affection it is considered harassment, misunderstood as some form of sexual advance, or misunderstood as a slipping into some sort of deviant behavior, when friendliness and kindness was the intent. Truce breakers: it is now common for a handshake to immediately be invalidated and discarded, it might be laughed at as a promise not kept that had no meaning anyways, and some even count it as a form of wisdom to take advantage of another and sort of deceive them with a truce or promise. Are we looking at times where keeping our word is meaningless? False accusers: these days it is not uncommon for someone to make lying accusations when righteousness is despised. When nothing else can be found to destroy another person with, the last resort might be false accusations. Attempting to discredit another person with malicious gossip or accusations is not uncommon in these days because the heart of man waxes cold and there is little respect for life.
We have discussed three here and three more will follow, but we begin to see as this was stated many years ago, how prevalent these are in our day. Times are in peril, let us think more about Jesus and draw near to him!
