Lovers of Pleasure rather than a lover of God

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. II Tim. 3 1-7

This verse describes America and its current citizens. We first off are lovers of ourselves. We love ourselves and are really only looking out for ourselves. We love to do whatever is best for us and are not walking out godly lives where we prefer one another. The next one is lovers of money. We are taught that money makes the world go around, but I have a little surprise for of those who believe that: God makes the world go around and if He so chose to, He could destroy it and would not be wrong for doing so. We are also proud and boastful when we think we can do things apart from God, when the word clearly says that we can do nothing apart from God. We rely on our own might and think we are so wise but we are just foolish and need a reality check. God in his kindness and long suffering is patience with us to lead us to him. The biggest problem we face as a nation is being lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. We would rather seek after thing that please the flesh then seek after One who can give us abundant riches in this age and in the age to come. We have a form of godliness but we deny its power by pursuing lust of the flesh.

The byproduct of this is the current ills of our country, abortion, homosexuality, teen pregnancy, pornography and other sexual sins. Paul said this would happen when we so seeds into the flesh that we would reap destruction because the flesh profits nothing. Paul also told us to flee from youthful lust but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

The following video is very graphic but I think it is important to remove the distortion from abortion issue. I think every young lady thinking about having an abortion should see what abortion truly is.
