One of the most repeated arguments against Bible prophecy is that people have been saying we're living in the last days for years. How do we know whether we really are living in the last days? One method I have found useful is to compare prophetic commentary made in the past with events occurring today.

Observations made in the past vs. ones made today

The moral problems of long ago seem comical when compared to the ones of today. We almost have to smile as we read them. They would be funny if they didn't point out how corrupt our society has become. It is unlikely that 100 years from now, people will be comparing how evil their generation has grown since our time. I am convinced that man has exhausted his imagination when it comes to the invention of new evil deeds. Any comparisons made with us, future tense, would certainly show how values have improved or stayed the same.
