“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves…” (2 Timothy 3:1,2)
The big movements of our time (feminism, Women’s Rights, CRT, BLM, rainbow coalition…) are all built upon being lovers of their own selves without regard to anyone else.
Here’s what the commentaries of old say about being lovers of their own selves:
“Lovers of their own selves. Selfishness well heads the dreary list. It is the true root of all sin.”
“The selfishness which is condemned, is that regard to our own interests which interferes with the rights and comforts of others; which makes self the central and leading object of living; and which TRAMPLES ON ALL THAT WOULD INTERFERE WITH THAT.”
“For men shall be lovers of their own selves; that is, the generality of men shall be persons that will neither love God nor men, in comparison with themselves; charity, which seeketh not her own, shall wax cold, men shall be wholly for themselves.”
We are absolutely in perilous times, women. Love God, His Word, and others. Dwell on the true, honest, and pure. Be salt and light in this wicked generation.
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
