II Timothy 3:1-7 “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, false accusers, incontinent, 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.“
I read this verse today and it reminded me of the perilous time to which we have come. Our company, Clean Internet, seeks to keep people from the filth that is on the Internet, but it seems that so many out in the world don’t want to be kept from it. They are “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” and definitely “lovers of their own selves.” It has been more and more prevalent that we as moral or religious families are being outnumbered or out-voted by those that are seeking their own pleasures. Have you ever reported something that you did not want your family to see or hear to the authorities or someone in charge and they looked at you like you were crazy for thinking that it was wrong or told you that there was nothing you can do about it. It seems like society places more emphasis on the rights of those that are doing wrong and do not seem to mind that it may offend us as moral people. This is exactly the decline of society that Timothy is talking about in the last times.
The last part of this of this verse shows why we should guard our homes from these people. “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.” We do not want to be one of those “silly women” that is led away with the lusts of this world, or have someone in our family be classified in this way. The Bible tells us to turn away from people who are classified in these verses. Keep the sin of this unconcerned world out of our homes with a Christian Internet Filter.
