Discussion for Matthew 24:12

  • I believe that because sin has increased iniquity the love of many shall wax turn cold. Why does a man or woman say to the other, "I don't love you any more, and walks off?" The person's love for their mate has gone cold because of sin. They quit serving God who is Love. Why do some women abandon a child in a dumpster, has their love turned cold because of sin? We are living in the last days. "Awaken Church, there is no one praying".
  • Isaac solomon for verse 12
    mathew 24:12 is even a word of God happening everyd. Love of those that is waxing cold are both the non-christian, and wicked ungrateful christians. Anyone who is not straight-forward and open mind to God and man, his or her love will aways wax cold. Remember no one can see God ordinarily, that is why God said we should learn to do good in the book of isaiah 1:16-17.
