[people will be] unholy, 2 Timothy 3:2f
It’s almost as if these verses are being lived out in 2018. It’s pretty amazing how timeless these truths are. Not only do the atheists and agnostics not believe, but they denigrate and mock those who do. They purposefully provoke to cause reactions and when we react, they try to quote the Bible about turning the other cheek or something similar.
Unholy men and women have existed since before this was written, but it’s becoming more and more blatant as the days go by. It’s something we should expect because their father is the father of lies.
So, how do you pray for the blatantly unholy? The same as you would anybody else. They are sinners in need of a savior. But I’m convinced they have to be at the end of their rope to recognize their need. They’re not going to come willingly. Their will is just too strong to do otherwise. The god of this world has blinded their eyes. Remember, we are in a spiritual battle for the hearts and minds of Satan’s children.
