“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Timothy 3:1-7)
We are in the last days, women. Perilous times have come. As I look at this list, I can see that it has come from the denial of God and the breakdown of the family. Love God and keep your family together!
False teachers convince women they need to love themselves. God never commands this of us. He commands we love Him and love others as we love ourselves. We love ourselves too much! This is what causes all of these other sins: covetousness, boasting, pride, and disobedience.
We have a nation that loves pleasure more than it loves God. This is dangerous, women. Do you notice how Paul then goes on to write about “silly women”? We know from Scripture that women are more easily deceived (1 Timothy 2:14). Many women who claim the name of Christ watch immoral and godless shows like soap operas, The Bachelor, and others that are filled with things that God hates. These women are feeding their lusts. This is why so many women are addicted to porn these days. Instead of dwelling on the good and the lovely (Philippians 4:8), they dwell on the perverted and wicked.
Then we wonder why so many women are being led away from truth and deceived by all of the false female preachers. Instead of meditating upon God’s Word and growing in the wisdom and the knowledge of Him, they are meditating upon the filth of this world. You will never find true joy and contentment by doing this, women.
I recommend turning off the TV completely. There really is hardly anything of value on it anymore. Watch the TV shows and movies of old when sin was acknowledged as sin and good always triumphed over evil. There were no sex scenes or immoral activities intended to entice its audience.
God tells us that His people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Please, women, be in the Word daily, even if it is only a chapter a day. Get rid of the devotionals and only read God’s Word. You will only grow in wisdom from His Word. Then you will be able to clearly distinguish between good and evil. (I recommend beginning in the book of John and reading to the end of your Bible if you are a beginner.)
I cannot watch garbage. It holds no appeal to me. It disgusts me. I love goodness and holiness. I hate the filth of this world. I would rather play with my grandchildren, and write and mentor women in the ways of biblical womanhood than be entertained by anything this world has to offer.
I have heard of too many “Christian” women who have had affairs and divorced their husbands. Why is this happening? Because thy are “silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Do NOT be one of them! Grow in the wisdom and the knowledge of the Lord instead. The silly women will only reap pain and destruction in their lives. Godly women will reap joy and goodness in their lives. Whom are you going to serve? Yourself or God?
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:16,17
