Does the following define the world we live in (21st century), today?

In the last days, there will be violence on a global scale. People are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, (porn) and allergic to any kind of faith especially Christianity. Oh yes, some will pretend to be 'religious',but behind the scenes they’re animals.

Doesn't this define the world we live in today? Read or listen to the news or watch TV.

The lack of moral values of Jesus Christ, is glaring, don't you think? If you think there are superior moral values to Christs' values,(The ten commandments for instance.) please show and explain the difference.

    No one knows how the world will end. do not worry or even think about it. Emulate Jesus and you will stand as an example to others and will influence for the better. Good people vastly outnumber evil ones but all are flawed according to your list. You list all the bad. List all the good characteristics and you will find more. I think Jesus knew we are fickle wretches so he reduced the commandments to two.

    don't know what you mean by 'last days' [of what?]

    ''People are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, (porn) and allergic to any kind of faith''

    Agreed! except, not all people are the same or have all of these qualities.. and Christianity is not the only religion that there are people allergic to.. people have been skeptical of and allergic to almost all the extinct religions in their last days. that's what caused those religions to die.

    ''some will pretend to be 'religious',but behind the scenes they’re animals.''

    some people pretend to be religious,, and some don't, some are actually religious. and all of homo sapiens are mammals.. not just behind 'the scenes' but where ever we go, we ARE animals.

    Jesus was probably a hippie. superior in almost no way to an average person today. for example.. you can do a quiz where you ask people on the street what their values are and what they believe is right and wrong.. no one would wanna kill homosexuals or their neighbor mowing the lawn on a Sunday morning.

    Humans are inherently barbaric in nature, a majority of people just tend to suppress this side.
