18 They said to you that “In the last time there will be mockers, walking after their own ungodly lusts.”
One of the signs that we are living close to the return of Jesus Christ with the coming man of lawlessness is by seeing masses of people turning away from God, and into atheism.
Another sign is seen in the church of those who are departing from sound doctrine and are being deceived to join groups such as liberalism [interpreting Scripture through the lens of liberalism], Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventist, Catholicism, and Oneness Pentecostal to name a few.
To become ungodly and give in to one’s sinful desires, a person has to reject Biblical inerrancy to accept the things that the Scripture condemns. Eventually, you will become a scoffer of those holding on to the Scriptures as the very words of God. If God’s Word is not the center of your life, your faith will die.
You want to see a Christian if he or she is serious about Christ? Ask them what they think about the Bible. And you will see where they are at.
