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 pleasures rather than lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but denying its power.  And from such people turn away!”   Last days  includes the whole time from the writing of this letter until the return of Christ. It sure seems like all of the above has escalated in our lifetimes.
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 begin to participate in religious activities that are empty.  Their activities will have nothing to do with a true relationship with God or with individual faith in Jesus Christ.  This kind of religion provokes God’s anger. Glad we all have a faith based relationship with our Savior!   Have a Blessed weekend and everyone stay warm!!!
