Context Readings

Difficult Times Ahead In The Last Days

3 incapable of affection, merciless, slanderous, wanting in self-control, brutal, careless of the right, 4 treacherous, reckless, and puffed up with pride; they will love pleasure more than they love God; 5 and while they retain the outward form of religion, they will not allow it to influence them. Turn your back on such men as these.
