Yes, we are living in Roman times, and getting worse.
It’s going to get worse.

"Part of the delusion that is damning people, is the illusion of their own innate goodness."

Bingo! This is equivalent to what you see in liberals in MA. Merely because a thought occurred to them, supported by a good emotion ... that equals 'what's right' -> there is no further questioning.

In one word this is called 'Pride.' It's not the pride of 'I think I'm great', its the more subtle unconscious assumption of innate goodness. The truth about human nature is that without self reflection, self examination, we are a deluded and chaotic species.

Drunk on our own thoughts.

Only defense is to know that you are drunk on your own thoughts, that thoughts aren't you, they are a tool. Once identified with, thoughts will take you to hell.

These themes (Pride, original sin, lack of self examination, identification with thinking) are so all over the Bible ... it's almost the color of the Bible, or as if they Bible were soaked in them.
