“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, Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” – 2 Timothy 3:1-3,5
“While we may have differences in what constitutes special peril for us individually, we share much that establishes the apt description of “perilous times” for all. It is a knowledge and testimony of the living Christ that allows us to be continually responsive to the advice and counsel of Peter.” – Cecil O. Samuelson Jr.
