In a day of relativism and humanism, adherence to the truth of Scriptures is increasingly
critical. A Christian simply must know the Word of God, and live according to its principles., especially
when it becomes more and more difficult to do so.
Paul exhorts Timothy on just this matter in the book of 2 Timothy, his last epistle to his
devoted son in the faith. in 2 Timothy 3, Paul written, "in the last days perilous times will come: For men
will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness
but denying its power. And from such people turn away! ... But you have carefully followed my doctrine,
manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance" (2 Timothy 3:1-5, 10).
