We need to understand, in our bones, that the current elite are believing their lies, and do not take feedback well. We need to know that instagram and facebook is not real life, and likes or follows are not a real acheivement. Our attention is being monetized, sold, bent,spindled and mutilated.
Young women need to know that they are pretty just long enough to learn how to be beautiful. (Go to Amy's place, now, for hints). Young men need to know how to work with honour and to stay away from the college instagram girls.
And we need to know that many of the preachers love their social media and their likes -- because they are using popularity as the measure of their worth, not faithfulness to the word of God. There have always been such. And they have always led to destruction.
2 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell[a] and committed them to chains[b] of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 5 if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;[c] 7 and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked 8 (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,[d] and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who indulge[e] in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.
Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones,
