Is Scriptures 2 Timothy 3:2 becoming more relevant today than ever?

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

These characteristics seem to be more and more common than before and I'm not liking.

    'Relevant', sure, and another word that fits accurately now finally, even in just over the last 40 years, the change, is 'fulfilled'.

    (note that it can be helpful also to read in more than one translation, so you could add the ESV for instance:

    "lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. ")

      That is indeed a key part of the Gospel, Norine. All need to confess/repent. That's humble to do. Never imagine it's for *other* people, but not yourself. Each one of us that will make it will be persons that confessed they were wrong/sinful/guilty, before God, and He is right/good/redeemer.

    "...lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away?"

    Isn't it a "pleasure" to be a mainstream Christian who believes there is a 3 in 1 God called a trinity although GOD SAID the Spirit is ***DIVERSITIES OF OPERATION BUT ONE GOD<<< (I Corinthians 12:16)?

    Don't today's "trinitarians" love their pleasure of the belief in a 3 in 1 God more than they love God?

    Isn't it a "pleasure" to be a mainstream Christian who believes in setting up tables as they did under the "FIRST COVENANT" (Hebrews 9:1-2)?

    Don't today "Christians" love their pleasure of setting up tables more than they love God?

    Isn't it a "pleasure" to be a mainstream Christian who believes in TWO baptisms although God said "one baptism" (Ephesians 4:5), told which "one" in Acts 1:5 that is "the way of GodΒ  more perfectly" (Acts 18:26) for baptism rather than a water baptism (Acts 18:25)?

    Don't today "Christians" love their pleasure of a water baptism more than they love God?

    Didn't Jesus say AFTER Holy Spirit baptism (Acts 1:5) that His "POWER would come upon us" (Acts 1:8), as we are given "Spiritual gifts" (I Corinthians) and "Signs follow" (Mark 16:17-18) that are ***POWERFUL?***

    Do today's "Christians" have any ***POWER?***

    What did II Timothy 3:5 say?

    Doesn't it say those WITHOUT ***POWER*** are ((( "HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS))) but areΒ 

    >>>DENYING THE POWER OF GOD<<<Β 

    Didn't II Timothy 3:5 say

    >>>FROM SUCH TURN AWAY?<<<

    NOW IF ***GOD*** COMMANDED US TOΒ 

    >>>TURN AWAY<<<

    HOW MUCH MORE DO YOU THINK HE HAS

    >>>TURNED AWAy?<<<

    YOU PEOPLE ARE IN TROUBLE IN YOUR 3 IN 1 god and YOUR WATER BAPTISM ROMAN CATHOLIC BELIEFS!

    YOU WILL ***PAY!***

    I ***GUARANTEE*** YOU!
