Who & what does this description remind you of?
This is Paul writing to his adopted son, Timothy, in his last letter to Timothy...
2 Timothy 3
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,
They will consider nothing sacred.
3 They will be unloving
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 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!

2 Timothy 1
9 For God saved us
and called us to live a holy life.
He did this,
not because we deserved it,
but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time;
to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
10 And now he has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior.
He broke the power of death
and illuminated the way to life and immortality
through the Good News.

Maybe we should take Paul's advice & share these 2 verses with any rich people we know?
btw, most of the world considers all Americans to be rich...
1 Timothy 6
17 Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud
and not to trust in their money,
which is so unreliable.
Their trust should be in God,
who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.
18 Tell them to use their money to do good.
They should be rich in good works
and generous to those in need,
always being ready to share with others.
19 By doing this
they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future
so that they may experience true life.
