Knowledge has certainly risen by leaps and bounds with the invention of the internet, which makes multiple volumes of encyclopedias’ worth of knowledge accessible at one’s finger tips. The Bible has even prophesied social behaviors which is very prevalent in our time like widespread narcissism in the selfies movement, the pride, the sense of entitlement by children, all the mistrust, liars, obsession with materialism and many others:
2 Timothy 3:1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud,blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Timothy was written by the apostle Paul, all the way back in 63 A.D., and unless you have been living under a rock over the last decade, you cannot deny the blatant obsession with material possession as the passage says, “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.” Do you remember the images flooding the internet and social media, of a certain celebrity’s naked backside? My goodness, I could almost end this point with that recent fact alone, as it embodies almost all that Paul warned about above! The narcissism surrounding the selfies movement is clearly described, “men shall be lovers of their own selves.” These prophecies are so amazing, it is almost as if Paul had time traveled to our time, then time traveled back to his own time and wrote this stuff – his details are spot-on! However, I am sure that some who will read this point, may still think, “This is all just a coincidence recorded in an irrelevant and very moldy book (the bible)...” Well this “moldy” book seems to have perfectly anticipated the rise of these evils like pride, pornography, materialism, etc.
