Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death,
and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many
will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and
many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Be cause of
the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who
stands firm to the end will be saved.
Matthew 24: 9, 10, 11,12, 13
