Bible Questions Answered:
“...most of my friends don't believe in God...”
Ned/ Dallas, Texas U.S.A.
We live in what our Bibles calls “the last days.” Times of great scoffing, and cynicism, nothing is to be believed, and certainly no one.
An attitude of scornful or jaded negativity, especially a general distrust of the integrity or professed motives of others:
(The Free Dictionary-Farlex)
II Timothy 3:1-5 NLT
1 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.
2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud,
scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.
3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good.
4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.
5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them Godly. Stay away from people like that!
To speak derisively; mock; jeer.
