Error, indeed, is never set forth in its naked deformity, lest, being thus exposed, it should at once be detected. But it is craftily decked out in an attractive dress, so as, by its outward form, to make it appear to the inexperienced (ridiculous as the expression may seem) more true than the truth itself. - Irenaeus

Trump election exposed sin

When protesters go so far as to threatened to rape our President's wife we are seeing an all time low in the morality of our society.  In the book of Genesis just before Sodom was destroyed there were those who demanded the rape of Lot's guests in similar fashion of depravity.  Then we have civil leaders who even after the election were inciting rebellion and riots.  One in particular was Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawan who proudly posted this photo on her Facebook page.  This is an example of those who have been elected to positions of leadership by a society drowning in sin.
The Bible claims these are those who by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties.  They revile the things they don't understand.  These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.  (Book of Jude)

Apostle Paul sums up the picture in this way, "But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.  For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these." (2 Tim. 3:1-5)
