"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people."
2 Timothy 3:1-5 ESV
As each day passes by until Christ returns, for the second time and final time, there will be an increase of the above listed traits.
What is interesting is that Paul is referring to false converts in this Scripture. We are to avoid such people that profess the name of Christ yet reflect anything but the true nature of Christ. We are to avoid such people that have a continual and non-repentant lifestyle.
There a few reasons for this:
1. If we associate with people such as these, we will not be able to represent Christ well to non-Christians.
2. Bad company corrupts good morals - we want to remain holy just as our Lord is holy. It is easier to be negatively influenced than be a positive influence.
Reader, if you are new to the faith, I would encourage you to seek advice and consultation with one who has a proven track record of walking with Christ. If you are encountering false converts regularly, it is always wise to seek an opinion of one mature in the faith to help guide you through your specific scenario.
