Ring Any Bells?

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God -- having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.

That's from 2 Timothy verses 1-7.

Selfish, money-worshipping Morons who are unable to *acknowledge the truth*???

I've never come across any!

Have you?

So we must have plenty of *days* left....

In all seriousness though, this is why the Bible is a must read. It's timeless - about the past, the present, and the future.

Reading it I discovered that *abortion* was far from a new issue. It has roots going back millennia to when pagans sacrificed children to Molech.

I also discovered that being *green* today isn't just about junk science, statism, wealth guilt, and being trendy; I found out that it's merely the modern day version of age-old earth worship.

And I found out a whole lot more than that from the Good Book- as anyone who approaches it with application and a discerning mind will.

BTW, I believe the *last days* refers NOT to the week before a Al Gore's apocalyptic tidal wave hits the moneychangers in Manhattan....I believe it refers to the period of time between Jesus Christ's resurrection and his imminent return.

Based on the description of human virtue, I think it fair to say that the last days will resemble the first days and, for that matter, all the days in between.

Other than that, this reads like self-parody. Awesome.
