Motivated by Their Own Lusts
2 Peter 3:3-4 (KJB) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
There are many scorners working in this world motivated by their own selfish lusts rather than being led by truths and direction of God. They pick and prod about the promises of God and refuse to place faith in anything biblically structured and eternally solid.
Instead, they place faith in their own understanding and abilities to decipher the times and troubles they are facing. Not only do these deriders have no belief in God or His Son Jesus Christ, they place no credibility to His authority or in His imminent return to this earth one day soon.
Any person who does not believe in God will naturally serve his own self-interests, come up with implausible solutions to issues at hand, and have no lasting hope for the future. One day he will be surprised to death, literally, when Jesus Christ does return to this earth and remove His saints and bring on the end of the world.
