2 Timothy 3: 1-5: “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying it’s power. And from such people turn away!”
‘Last days’ refers includes the whole time from the writing of this letter until the return of Christ. ‘A form of godliness’ is an outward appearance of reverence for God.’Denying its power’ describes religious activity that is not connected to a living relationship with Jesus Christ. As time progresses, people would begin to participate in religious activities that are empty. Their activities would have nothing to do with a pure relationship with God or with individual faith in Jesus Christ. This type of religion provokes God’s anger.
