“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
The Bible warns of ‘perilous times’ during the last days and so they are.
One of the reasons for peril is the world will offer virtues which are not. They sound good but, upon closer inspection, are selfish, man-centered, antichrist ones.
The values which built civilization as it has been known for the last 4000 or so years will be rejected and exchanged for those which tear down families, God and life itself.
Concepts such as SIN, FEAR of GOD, FAITH, PATIENCE, SELFLESSNESS, SALVATION, RIGHTEOUSNESS and CHARITY are being exchanged for the world’s weak tea of
- Tolerance (of sin)
- Love (of approved attitudes only)
- Freedom (from the commandments of God)
- Liberty (from anything which restricts an individual’s choices)
- Self-expression (celebration of self and the elevation of self as the highest standard of moral validation)
- Open-mindedness (concerning wickedness)
- Choice (of evils)
Murder no longer is called murder. It takes on different names. Murder becomes “choice.” Murder becomes “death with dignity.” Murder becomes “mercy.”
Death with Dignity: The Murder of the Inconvenient
Love is no longer love. Obsession, enslavement, compulsion, passion, addiction, infatuation, lust, mania, jealousy: all are labeled “love.”

These new virtues are exalted by the world and placed above all others. Anyone with competing values will be labeled “old fashioned,” shouted down or worse.
Jesus? What? Don’t push your superstitions on me! This is 2016! Nobody’s gonna tell me what to do! I’m the master of my own destiny!
IN some cases, pleasures have been substituted for virtues. One example is the transformation of the appreciation of one’s family ( a natural state and a pleasure) into a virtue. Another is changing the companionship of a pet (a pleasure) into a virtue.
Though values have rapidly changed, the new virtues have appropriated the names of the old.
Again, this is especially noticeable in what the world now calls “love.”
Real love is SELFLESS and concerned with the other person’s well-being ahead of one’s self.
The world’s new version of love emphasizes self, self and more self. Many younger folks believe love has to do with control: either gaining or surrendering it.
This exchange of social values only gets worse and the meaning of words is being turned completely upside down.
Hate (of those who disagree) becomes LOVE (of what one prefers).
LOVE of God Almighty becomes hate (to all who want to live free of such restraints).
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
The New Virtues are lies.
And such lies have a very short shelf-life.
Forty-two months months, according the Bible.
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
Is the reader already under the influence of the New Virtues? Is he calling good evil, and evil good?
How can the reader tell?
It is not yet too late to change.
Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
