Apostate Christianity



   2 Tim 3:1-7   This know also, that in the last days perilous 
   times shall come. {2} For men shall be lovers of their own 
   selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to 
   parents, unthankful, unholy, {3} Without natural affection, 
   trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers 
   of those that are good, {4} Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers 
   of pleasures more than lovers of God; {5} Having a form of 
   godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 
   {6} For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead 
   captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers 
   lusts, {7} Ever learning, and never able to come to the 
   knowledge of the truth. 

   2 Tim 3:13   But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and 
   worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 

   2 Pet 2:1  But there were false prophets also among the people, 
   even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily 
   shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that 
   bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. {2} 
   And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom 
   the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. {3} And through 
   covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of 
   you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their 
   damnation slumbereth not. {4} For if God spared not the angels 
   that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them 
   into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; {5} And 
   spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a 
   preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world 
   of the ungodly; {6} And turning the cities of Sodom and 
   Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making 
   them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; {7} 
   And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of 
   the wicked: {8} (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in 
   seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day 
   with their unlawful deeds;) {9} The Lord knoweth how to deliver 
   the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto 
   the day of judgment to be punished: {10} But chiefly them that 
   walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise 
   government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not 
   afraid to speak evil of dignities. {12} But these, as natural 
   brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the 
   things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in 
   their own corruption; {13} And shall receive the reward of 
   unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the 
   day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves 
   with their own deceivings while they feast with you; {14} 
   Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; 
   beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with 
   covetous practices; cursed children: {15} Which have forsaken 
   the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam 
   the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; {17}  
   These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a 
   tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 
   {18} For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they 
   allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, 
   those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. {19} 
   While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the 
   servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the 
   same is he brought in bondage. {20} For if after they have 
   escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of 
   the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled 
   therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than 
   the beginning. {21} For it had been better for them not to have 
   known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, 
   to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. {22} But 
   it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog 
   is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed 
   to her wallowing in the mire. 

   1 Tim 4:1   Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the 
   latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to 
   seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; {2} Speaking lies in 
   hyprocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron: {3} 
   Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, 
   which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them 
   which believe and know the truth.

   2 Tim 4:3-4   For the time will come when they will not endure 
   sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to 
   themselves teachers, having itching ears; {4} And they shall 
   turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto 
   fables. 

   Jude 1:4-19   For there are certain men crept in unawares, who 
   were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, 
   turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying 
   the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. {5} I will 
   therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how 
   that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of 
   Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. {6} And the 
   angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own 
   habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under 
   darkness unto the judgment of the great day. {7} Even as Sodom 
   and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving 
   themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, 
   are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of 
   eternal fire. {8} Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile 
   the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. {9} 
   Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he 
   disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a 
   railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. {10} But 
   these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what 
   they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they 
   corrupt themselves. {11} Woe unto them! for they have gone in 
   the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for 
   reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. {12} These are 
   spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, 
   feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, 
   carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without 
   fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; {13} Raging waves 
   of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to 
   whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. {14} And 
   Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, 
   Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, {15} 
   To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are 
   ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have 
   ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly 
   sinners have spoken against him. {16} These are murmurers, 
   complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth 
   speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in 
   admiration because of advantage. {17} But, beloved, remember ye 
   the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord 
   Jesus Christ; {18} How that they told you there should be 
   mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own 
   ungodly lusts. {19} These be they who separate themselves, 
   sensual, having not the Spirit.
