“In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.
As Christians we’re meant to be unified. We can’t allow the world to get under our skin. We’ve been warned that there will be those who would seek to normalize sexual sin, like that of Sodom and Gomorrah. These folks are the grumblers and malcontents who are hoping to follow their own sinful desires, and irritated at anyone who points out (like Paul did) Christians don’t act like that. They’re loud-mouth boasters, actually drawing attention to themselves by posting on Facebook and writing ridiculous blogs telling people “God is now ok with Homosexuality” or broadcasting that they are living with one who is not their spouse and they think it’s a great thing. These people are masquerading as Christians, yet they are “causing divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.” For us, we love God, we show mercy to those who doubt God, and by our kindness show them the way… but don’t get sucked in. Hate even the hint of those who would follow their own passions rather than the Lord Jesus Christ.
