I think it is the end times or very near. People have gone sour including myself I try to do good but just takes one little incident to make me forget about being good and I get angry an act on it. Not trying hard enough! Which is really bad because I do brlieve its the end times and im still sinning. What a fool I am!!!! God help us all

Iniquity is a sin that we do knowing and willfully. The Lord gives us power to do his will. He is talking about believers. We are to have true love. Like a candle the wax grows cold when too far from the light or the light hais gone out. The abomination of desulation spoken of by Daniel was a system that changed the laws of God. Isaih said that evil shall be called good. We are warned of false teachers. Interest on money is a form of stealing from the poor. Our society has twisted the parables where the man was afraid and he really did not know the master. Saying that interest is now condoned. Believers partake in this in several ways.we don't help others and hord things for ourselves. We are incouaged to save with interest paid. We are guilty by association. The money lenders to the lending. We are taught that capitism is free enterprise. It forces business to be servant to the lenders demanding payment with interest when it takes time to become profitable. Society then turn to state socialism with often atheistic teachings included. People that are willing to help each other should be society greatest asset not capital. People die for lack of food and water and knowledge with wisdom. There are no shortages in this world. Only evil hoarding. We partake in blood shed of innocent people when we things that are not Godly. We cause others to stumble and fall when we do not manifest the True Love of our Lord.

The more the evil we practise, the more our love for God disappears. To keep our love for God burning, let's therefore obey the Lord's commandments

I think the end is here, for these words have actually come before us. Many believers today have gone off the faith in search of wordly pleasure. May God help us!

Weymouth version hits the mark on this verse. With the help of my pastor looking into the original Greek, who this was originally written to and the context, we came to the same conclusion. Weymouth translation gets it right and makes it clear.

I regard this as being in the end of times were people will fall away from the relligeous teachings of the LORD and sin will increase. But honestly for a person trying to find more clarifying views and not be of english speaking as first language thank the Lord for the vers of the Waymouth Bible for I would be lost with the expresion of shakes spear english!
