I 'm no bible thumper, but just saying this applies only to homosexuality is a blind farcical comment. Go look at the political world today. How about the corporate one? Don 't be so blind as to say it doesn 't apply today.

The word "woe " means "misery grief, " the consequence of calling evil, good for putting darkness for light, which is mistaking lies for truth.

Yet these men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand and what things they do understand by instinct envy self ambition ,like unreasoning animals these are the very things that destroy them. Jude 10.

Yes, we are truly living in the times this verse speaks of. I live in Malta, and homo***uality, adultery, how men and women dress,(sometimes one wonders if they are dressed) are all accepted even by the authorities. If we talk against those things and about what God's Word says, they call us bigots.
But we all have to face God's judgment one day.
In Him,
