This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parent, unthankful, unholy.
2 Timothy 3:1&2
Verse is only semi-related. But wanted to post it anyway
1 Corinthians 1:17-18
"For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
