• I don't know about scripture, but we're definitely living in crazy times.
    • Texasescimo
      (2 Timothy 3:1-5) But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2?For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3?having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4?betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5?having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

      Mmmmkay.'s not the end of the world. It's just the people are f*ckin nuts right now.

      In a letter to Timothy, Paul spoke of the future “last days.” Because of the abandonment of the right conduct by people, these were to be “critical times hard to deal with” or, more literally, ‘fierce appointed times.’ The apostle was informing Timothy well in advance about future developments. For example, 2 Tim 3 v 2 - present-day parents, teachers, and others have firsthand evidence that many children are disrespectful and disobedient. Some of these youngsters are either reacting to or imitating their parents’ misbehavior. Increasing numbers of children are losing faith in—and rebelling against—school, the law, religion, and their parents. Our era is one of greed and a lack of moral restraint. Such attitudes have fostered numerous social problems.
    • Archie Bunker
      Well, I don't disagree with you on the lack of moral restraint. And that starts in the home. When you start having kids that actually have the balls to call the police because they were spanked, and the parents let it go, it was all downhill from there. The lack of proper parenting and the lack of personal responsibility has totally screwed this generation.
    • Arimatthewdavies
      I grew up in the '60s where it was shameful to wear baggy pants that hung down off of your butt it was shameful to say the f word back then. And it was still considered low class to do sex outside of marriage. Smoking marijuana and snorting cocaine back then was still a bad thing. Homosexuality was not a pretty thing back in those days. We did not have foreign religions in the United States that were bucking to control us. And if you got sent to the principal for a paddling when you got home you could count on getting it again! The world has gone downhill and it's going to go downhill further before Jesus comes back

      THANK YOU!! I miss the good old days. I miss manners, and morality. I miss values and (media) veracity. I'm black, and it was no picnic but at least the media told the truth, and elections were fair and honest. the country believed in the Constitution and that anybody could become President. Not now...not now...
  • Quote - The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic table top exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe coronavirus pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.The exercise took place a few months before the World Health Organization announced the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the statement from Johns Hopkins specifically states that the exercise was not predictive of the current pandemic. In fact they say that "the inputs we used for modelling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to CoV-2019".
    • Charin Cross
      any chance the Gates' would help bring China up on charges of bio weapon terrorism? doubt it.
  • Yes, we are seeing the fulfillment of these Scriptures firsthand!
  • Yes, and you can sure see the fulfillment of the governments not knowing what to do with the turbulent masses of mankind roaring like the sea and not being able to come together just like clay and iron don't mix. (Luke 21:25) “Also, there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea and its agitation. (Daniel 2:41-44) “And just as you saw the feet and the toes to be partly of clay of a potter and partly of iron, the kingdom will be divided, but some of the hardness of iron will be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with soft clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 Just as you saw iron mixed with soft clay, they will be mixed with the people; but they will not stick together, one to the other, just as iron does not mix with clay. 44 “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever,
  • Without a doubt. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 refers to the last days, just before Jesus returns. Matthew 16:27 "For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay each person according to what he has done."
    • WHF, What's His Face
      I just wonder if the new Christ is born yet or not. Jesus as a kid learned what the religions were during his youth, I wonder if he would be refreshing itself again.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Jesus was under the Mosaic law or what is known today as Judaism when He was born. He had to adapt to the law of the Old Testament before fulfilling it at the cross.
  • Most definitely, and here is the proo from the scriptures. Critical Times Now THE Bible foretold that mankind would experience “critical times hard to deal with.” It describes this period as “the last days.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:3-7) Jesus Christ spoke of this same era when answering a question posed by his disciples regarding “the conclusion of the system of things.” (Matthew 24:3) Are we now living during the last days? Compare what the Bible foretold with the recent reports quoted below, and then judge for yourself. What the Bible foretold: global conflict​—Luke 21:10; Revelation 6:4. What recent reports say: “War-related deaths in the 20th century were more than three times greater than in all previous centuries combined, back to the birth of Christ.”​—Worldwatch Institute. What the Bible foretold: food shortages and disease​—Luke 21:11; Revelation 6:5-8. What recent reports say: In 2004 an estimated 863 million people on earth were undernourished, 7 million more than in 2003.​—United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Some one billion people live in slums; 2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation; 1.1 billion people are without safe drinking water.​—Worldwatch Institute. Malaria affects 500 million people; 40 million people live with HIV-AIDS; tuberculosis killed 1.6 million people in 2005.​—World Health Organization. What the Bible foretold: the ruining of the earth​—Revelation 11:18. What recent reports say: “Human activities have taken the planet to the edge of a massive wave of species extinctions.” “Nearly two thirds of the services provided by nature to humankind are found to be in decline worldwide.”​—Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. “Human-made greenhouse gases have brought the Earth’s climate close to critical tipping points, with potentially dangerous consequences for the planet.”​—NASA, Goddard Institute for Space Studies. What the Bible foretold: the good news of God’s Kingdom preached earth wide​—Matthew 24:14; Revelation 14:6, 7. What recent reports say: During 2007, a peak of 6,957,854 Witnesses of Jehovah spent more than 1.4 billion hours preaching the good news about God’s Kingdom in 236 lands.​—2008 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses. As noted above, the Bible foretold that amid all the bad news, there would be reason for optimism. Jesus spoke of the “good news” of God’s Kingdom. What is God’s Kingdom? How is it linked to mankind’s hope for a better future? And how will God’s Kingdom affect you? The Bible foretold the world conditions we see today For more information on this subject please visit jworg.
  • Weren't people saying the world was gonna end on Y2K? And the whole Mayan calendar thing? How about the Planet X thing in 2017?
    • Texasescimo
      And what were those dates based on? Read the Bible, there is a BIG difference and nobody knows the day or the hour, not even Jesus. Only God knows the day and hour.
    • Archie Bunker
      Then why try to make comparisons to passages in the Bible? If God is the only one that knows a specific date the world is gonna end and it's preordained, why worry about it? Maybe it'll just be an asteroid that hits us and have nothing to do with Covid or race riots.
    • Texasescimo
      As I said, read the Bible. The planet is not going to end, just the wicked, just like Noah's day. God has given us work to do. (Matthew 24:14) And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (2 Peter 2:5, 6) And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people. 6?And by reducing the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes, he condemned them, setting a pattern for ungodly people of things to come.
    • Texasescimo
      We do not know the day or the hour, but we know that we are in the last days. (Matthew 24:3) While he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” (Matthew 24:32, 33) “Now learn this illustration from the fig tree: Just as soon as its young branch grows tender and sprouts its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33?Likewise also you, when you see all these things, know that he is near at the doors. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2?For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3?having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4?betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5?having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.
    • Texasescimo
      What Is the Sign of “the Last Days,” or “End Times”?
    • Archie Bunker
      I've read the Bible, but I don't buy into any of this "End Times" stuff.
    • Texasescimo
      So you have read it but you don't believe in the Bible? What translation did you read?
    • Archie Bunker
      I said, "I don't buy into any of this 'End Times' stuff." I've read the King James version, but why should that matter? I even went to a Catholic school for 10 years.
    • Texasescimo
      Have you compared whats going on in the world today with 2 Tim 3:1-5; Matthew 24; Luke 21; Mark 13; 2 Peter 3; 1 Thess 5:1-5; and Revelation? Parts of the KJV are a bit hard to understand. Many errors in it as well. .... Not sure what going to a Catholic school has to do with reading the Bible? Catholic doctrine is so far from biblical doctrine, hard to believe they are on the same planet.
    • Archie Bunker
      You've heard the saying "opinions are like assh*les," right? According to Catholic doctrine, many others are far from biblical doctrine.
    • Texasescimo
      So you went to Catholic school for 10 years so assumable you know what Catholicism is about. You seem to think that Catholic doctrine is a litmus test for biblical doctrine. If so, you haven't read the Bible. Religious titles like 'Father' are condemned by Jesus. Matthew 23. Forbidding to marry like Catholic Priest are is doctrines of demons as are teachings like lint. (1 Timothy 4:1-4) However, the inspired word clearly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired statements and teachings of demons, 2?by means of the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, whose conscience is seared as with a branding iron. 3?They forbid marriage and command people to abstain from foods that God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth. 4?For every creation of God is fine, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, That's just 2 simple ones that anyone should understand.
    • Archie Bunker
      Quoting the Bible to justify the Bible?
    • Texasescimo
      So now you cannot use the Bible as a Litmus test for what the Bible says? Some people just like to argue. (Luke 7:31-35) “With whom, therefore, should I compare the men of this generation, and whom are they like? 32?They are like young children sitting in a marketplace and calling out to one another, saying: ‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance; we wailed, but you did not weep.’ 33?Likewise, John the Baptist has come neither eating bread nor drinking wine, but you say: ‘He has a demon.’ 34?The Son of man has come eating and drinking, but you say: ‘Look! A man who is a glutton and is given to drinking wine, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ 35?All the same, wisdom is proved righteous by all its children.”
    • Archie Bunker
      You can use the Bible to show what the Bible says, but not prove that it's true. Again, quoting to the Bible to justify the Bible is terrible logic.
    • Texasescimo
      Where did I say I am 'quoting the Bible to justify the Bible'? The context of my post was in relation to your post: [You've heard the saying "opinions are like assh*les," right? According to Catholic doctrine, many others are far from biblical doctrine.] To me, the Bible is the legitimate source for biblical doctrine.
    • Archie Bunker
      You didn't say that, I did, citing me Scripture to justify your comment. Interpreting the Bible your way as opposed to another way is where you run into problems.
  • No and why do you believe what the Bible says?
  • TBH Yes, and we can be stronger together, and mask up together to stop the spread of COVID-19 !!! 😉😉😉
  • Yes now with the covid 19 the world is not capable of solving anything, so we need to pray for god's Kingdom even more. Mat 6:9-10
    • Texasescimo
      Hi Spreader, long time no see my friend. I am not on here much but stop by here and once and a while.
    • spreader
      Hi yes it's nice to hear from you, long time no see. And thanks for the tip.
    • Texasescimo
      I think that on answermug, you can friend request me and then we can private message. Don't think answerbag has that feature.
  • Yes we are. All those scriptures do apply to the problems we face today. Men being lovers of themselves, lovers of money, unthankful, disloyal, haughty headstrong, and puffed up with pride. These attitudes are in an abundance during nowadays. These times are known as the last days. For more information on the subject please visit wwwjworg
  • The time we are in is always the most critical because it is the only time we can affect change. But I don't think we need to freak out and be in a state of panic. You need to effect change right now to prepare for the future. Get your first aid kits in order and make sure everyone knows how to use them and what for. Its not a sticker kit to be played with. Get your go bag ready to go. You may need several, but definitely an overnight and a week. These are great for the kids anyway so they're ready to go to a friend's house or grandmas. Make sure they use them just to make sure the clothes still fit. Make sure you know where your important documents are and it would be a good idea to make a copy for a second location. But if you have the cloud I guess you don't need a hard copy just access to internet. And know how to get to your contacts if you loose your phone. Keep sanitizer, facemasks and a snack bag. I keep nuts in mine. That way I don't have to pay vending machine price for snacks if my appointments run late. Read scripture, so it can be brought to your remembrance when prompted by The Spirit and keep in communication with God.
  • Absolutely We are living in a modern system of things, but it is just like Noah's time. Jesus said about people in Noah’s day. They were eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away. Matthew 24:38, 39 What was wrong was their preoccupation with everything else to the exclusion of listening to God when he spoke through his servant Noah, a preacher of righteousness. Because they did not listen, when the Flood came it swept them all away into destruction. Many of those who died in the Flood no doubt considered themselves nice people, not being involved in the violence that filled society in those days. But just being nice did not save them. By their apathy they condoned the evil of their day.
  • Yes we are but I don't believe it has anything to do with religion
  • I'm calling it the time of breaking points, where so much was done for business that it left the public in the lurch, and they made laws without much of any backing any of it up, like politicians do.
  • I'm 100% sure that we're living in critical times as defined by the Bible. This is a little verse out of Revelation it was Miss translated I want to make you aware of the mistranslation because it's just a little bit scary! And the fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the Sun and power was given to it to scorch men with fire and Men blasting God but would not repent. The word found in the ancient Greek is Coronas feverum. It literally means Corona fever! Now it's easy to see how some Englishmen thought that scripture meant the corona of the Sun burning men with fire. But go and read it for yourself the coronavirus is in Revelation! Next comes a plague of terrible darkness! Whether that means Yellowstone erupts and makes it very dark and gloomy for about a year or if it means spiritual darkness I don't know but something very dark is coming and it's coming quite soon.
  • yeah, the first 20 or so years of 2000, will definitely be ones for the history books. I hope someone politically objective will write it, and not a biased leftist.
  • Well in revelation there’s signs that it predicts and all the signs are being showed now
  • It could and will be worse with Biden in power. He's going to have us in WWIII. our ships in the Arabian Sea fired across the bow of some Irani ships. it's only a matter of time before it escalates.
    • Victorine
      Nonsense. You really should see a shrink.
  • No more critical than other times in history. (I am a historian.) Covid is a problem, but imagine living through the Black Death, the Plague of Justinian, or even the 1918-19 Spanish flu. The people who did live through those pandemics never had a vaccine. Protests against racism? Haven't you ever heard of the Civil Rights Movement? The race riots of the 60s? No, sorry, but we're far luckier today than the people of the past were. We live in a much less violent, much safer, much more technologically-advanced world.
  • Yes, but it will get worse before it gets better.
