Self-seeking but not GOD-seeking.

2:9 [And] there will be tribulation and anguish and calamity and constraint for every soul of man who [habitually] does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile).
Lovers of money not of GOD.
1 Timothy 6:10 (Amplified Bible)
6:10 For the love of money is a root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have been led astray and have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves through with many acute [mental] pangs.
Wicked people are wicked not because of wicked things they do, but in this lifetime they have rejected the salvation of the LORD JESUS thru grace that's offered to them while here on earth. The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but spiritual death while you're alive.
