I work with several Jehovah Witnesses and generally avoid biblical discussions because they just go in circles. A discussion started today about politics and one JW asked me if I ever read 2 Timothy 3:1-5. I said yes but not recently, so he asked me to read it and we could talk about what it means.
I am not familiar with their version of the bible or their interpretation of these scriptures. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
