The Signs of Society Jesus said that society will become increasingly lawless and immoral as the time approaches for His return. In fact, He said it would become as evil as it was in the days of Noah (Matt. 24:12, 37-39).Paul paints a chilling picture of end-time society in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. He says it will be characterized by three loves - the love of self (humanism), the love of money (materialism), and the love of pleasure (hedonism). He then points out that the pay-off of this carnal lifestyle will be what the philosophers call nihilism - that is, a society wallowing in despair. Men's minds will become depraved (Rom. 1:28), and people will call evil good and good evil (Isa. 5:20).We are seeing these prophecies fulfilled before our eyes today as we watch our society reject its Christian heritage and descend into a hellish pit of lawlessness, immorality, and despair.Even worse, we are exporting our nihilism around the world through our immoral and violent movies and television programs.
