|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
18 "In the last days there will be people who don't take these things seriously anymore. They'll treat them like a joke, and make a religion of their own whims and lusts."
18 They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires."
