For many years people have told me “The way the world is today, I’m sure we are in the end times.” I’ve always replied with, “I don’t know, I think it could still get a LOT worse.”
But now, with what I read today on CNN, it sure feels like we’re getting pretty close to the bottom of the barrel.
What am I talking about? The “Adult Entertianment” industry is officially requesting a financial bail-out – from YOU, the American Tax Payer.
I’m not making this up. You can read the story here.
It reminds me of this passage…
2 Timothy 3:1-5
1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.
All the more reason for us to hold out Jesus to this quickly-dying world!
