Paul prophesied that the church would see people resisting the truth and he showed that such was nothing new, for even in the days of Moses people resisted the truth:
"Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was" (2 Timothy 3.8–9).
People here often talk about religious authorities who are obviously have wrong motives, such as material gain. I tell them it's nothing new. Don takes it further, all the back to Moses' day.
