But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.
They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.”
These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.
Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. …near the end of time, selfish & godless people would start making fun of God…
To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
GNT – everywhere you look, this world makes fun of God and His Son Jesus Christ. God’s ways are being marked as politically incorrect, our Christian values are mocked and ridiculed, our Christian political leaders fear standing up for Christ and His word. So as we spread the Gospel to every corner of the world and fulfil His commandments, this world is on a downhill slide, but even so, we must be like Christ and do all that we do in Love and meekness, we must never be boastful, arrogant or prideful and reflect how Jesus acted during his trial and crucifixion.
