A New Take on Ananias and Sapphira

There is a shift that has happened in people's hearts in the area of giving; a change in wanting to bless others towards keeping for oneself or holding back-an Ananias and Sapphira spirit, that runs parallel to greed increasing; connected to the "prosperity" teachings that has pervaded the Western church for the past several decades, and has been imported around the world.
The picture of Jesus washing the disciples' feet at the Passover meal, before He was crucified and left this earth, is quickly fading, with His message of serving others, backed up by His Word "to esteem others better than ourselves." (Phil. 2:3)
Serving and giving is the heartbeat of our Christ, which is barely discernible today, while selfishness is being proudly accepted as the new norm. (although it is not being called that, but rather justified for one reason or another, for example, using the Scripture "love your neighbor as yourself'" and twisting it's meaning.)
The light of Christ's love, which once shined bright, is slowly being darkened by this blight of the soul, in the hearts of many who call themselves His.

"And lawlessness will increase, and the hearts of most will grow cold."- Matt. 24:12.
"See, I have told you beforehand."-Matt. 24:25
