    I just posted this verse in another thread. This is from 2 Timothy 3 and is about the Last Days. Has this ever been more true that for the Selfie Generation, in 2018?

    God help us all.

    "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, unappeaseable, 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."--2 Timothy 3:1-5

    Your thought here reminded me of a video demonstrating just that very thing in Timothy 3. It's about three minutes, I think.

    Yeah. It sure does.

    Can't say that I'm not guilty at times, myself. Really, I suppose all we can do is ask ourselves what we can try to do better.

    Timothy 3 sure does nail it, though. Good op, btw. Very relevant to the state of affairs.

    What is wrong with you, Sue? Do you have as swaddling little baby Jesus at your bedside?

    1. The "seven deadly sins" is not Biblical. They are good principles, just not directly from the Bible.

    2. Resistance is definitely the Religion of the Left. You have an actual church for that yet?

    What is it about me that you find so fascinating that you have to imagine my bedside? It's a little.....creepy, isn't it?

    Trump is the embodiment of all those things you highlighted in your OP. Ironic that evangelicals helped promote him to the highest office in the land.
