6 Bible verses that sum up the world today

        If I had to pick 6 Bible verses that sum up a majority of the world today they'd be:

(1) Philippians 2:21
(2) 2nd Timothy 3:5
(3) Galatians 6:7
(4) Proverbs 21:2
(5) Galatians 4:16
(6) Hosea 4:6

        Everyone wants their sin instead of Jesus (Philippians 2:21), so they subscribe to some loosely defined concept of God that lets them feel like they can have it without consequence, believing in something that's "bigger than themselves" but just never big enough to be accountable to (2nd Timothy 3:5). So, they reap the rewards of their sin, which is a train-wrecked life (Galatians 6:7), but because everyone has a healthy dose of  "can't be wrong" syndrome today, no one's taking responsibility for their life (Proverbs 21:2), and then they get mad at anyone who tries to help them, perceiving even the slightest correction as "judgment" (Galatians 4:16). Worst of all, people aren't aware of any of this because no one reads their Bible any more (Hosea 4:6).

Philippians 2:21
For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.

2nd timothy 3:5
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Proverbs 21:2
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.

Galatians 4:16
Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...
