We have seen some of the characteristics of man during the last days.
It is not a pretty picture.
Much like today, yet more intense.
2 Timothy 2:1-5
1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,
4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.
Man will be “un-”
Ungrateful - acharistos
Unholy - anosios
Unloving - astorgos
- without natural affection
- in human
Obviously these are not traits/characteristics of True Believers.
The world knows we are Jesus’ disciples by our love for one another.
A True Believer is grateful, holy and loving.
Let us be so.
Avoid such men as these.
