“For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy…” II Timothy 3: 2 NKJV.
Paul, an Apostle, by revelation and insight gave a description of what shall characterized the end time. The events as predicted are becoming the reality of the day. The prophecy is fast being fulfilled by each passing day. The entire society beginning from the individuals to the family units, the community and national life are all under siege. Paramount among the evils plaguing all areas of human endeavours of our day is the lust for money with its hold on both men and women, young and old.
Mammon, the god of money is highly exalted and enthroned in the heart of many. It is one irresistible force and motivation behind every major move and action in all spheres of life. A vast majority had been captured and captivated by the deceitfulness of riches. Most efforts of people in business, political and even religious circles are money-driven. The few in the society who are yet to be victims of this modern day tyranny of life are engaged in an on going internal battle against its seduction, passion, intimidation and harassment. The spate of decadence, corruption, violence, killings, rituals and human sacrifice as are presently experienced in our society are offsprings of this deadly desire for money and all its deeds. The whole land is filled with its message, well embraced even by youth and teenagers.
