“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”
King James Version (KJV)
24:10 Then shall many he offended - So as utterly to make shipwreck of faith and a pure conscience. But hold ye fast faith, #Mt 24:11|. in spite of false prophets: love, even when iniquity and offences abound, #Mt 24:12|. And hope, unto the end, #Mt 24:13|. He that does so, shall be snatched out of the burning. The love of many will wax cold - The generality of those who love God will (like the Church at Ephesus, #Rev 2:4|,) leave their first love.
Mt 24:10 Then shall many be offended. Shall stumble and fall, rather than suffer for Christ. The half-hearted always do.
