The spirit of the times is the evil spirit found in much of the world’s modern culture/attitudes. It is not constant, and can vary from era to era and culture to culture. Though not always obviously evil in itself, the spirit of the times will always be instrumental in leading people away from serving and obeying God. (1 Corinthians 2:12; Ephesians 2:1-3; Ephesians 6:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-11; 1 John 4:1-3; Revelation 16:13-14)
