The Future is Now Our Present

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

Last week I wrote a blog based on the question presented to me by a CGC member which was “Why does God make evil people?” my answer then is the same as it is now God does not make evil people but rather people choose to be evil and or sinners. A day later I remembered this scripture below.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. 2 Timothy 3:1-8 (ESV)

According to history, this is a letter written by Paul who sent it to Timothy just before Paul died in Rome here Paul prophesizes the days when the people of this world become Godless.

For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.

It might be just me but that reads like so many people in today’s society but then Paul tells us this.

Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions,

 A man, Paul, wrote this thousands of years ago and it is obvious that it is happening today and what wisdom Avoid such people. It is apparent to me as a Christian that the evil one has the hearts of so many people in this world and many of these people would soon hurt Christians rather than to listen to them so…Avoid such people. Save yourself save your family and Avoid such people.

Conculsion

Over the last two weeks, I have tried to maintain a theme in my blogs.

The bible contains truths and wisdom if anyone says it s a hoax please refer to the “An Atheist Weak Sauce” blog. If people think that the bible is a hoax then ask why did it take over 1500 years to write it?…according to scholars and experts.

There are evil people in this world and they chose to be that way.

Paul prophesized that there would be Godless people in this world which would actually account for so many terrible things that happen in this world.

I have heard this from so many people and parents

All I want is my children to be safe

That they would live in a world of peace

That no harm would come to them

To know goodness

And to know love

And that they would come to know Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior

God bless all that read this with His love, light, grace, mercy, and wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)
