These verses from Proverbs 11 form a prophetic warning for our generation. The Bible actually has more to say about the time in which we live than any other time period in human history! There are two important things to note about the time in which we live:
1) the wickedness of mankind will spiral out of control, and
2) many people will not recognize their need to have their heart cleansed.
This generation is "pure in its own eyes" and is "not washed from its filthiness". Jesus left us a directive for this hour, "be not deceived". There is only one way to escape the chaos and deception of this generation, we must pursue God and allow Him to cleanse us. Those who refuse to do this will be counted with the crowd that believes that their way is right. For more information on this generation, please see this Parable Power article: A World In Chaos
