They Will Not Endure Sound Doctrine

February 9

“For the time will come when they
will not endure sound doctrine,
but according to their own desires,
because they have itching ears,
they will heap up for themselves teachers,
and they will turn their ears away from the truth,
and be turned aside to fables.”
2 Timothy 4:2-4

…they will not endure sound doctrine.

Until this generation, Christian doctrine remained pretty much solid and reliable.

Not so in this generation. In fact, the word “evangelical” can no longer be used to define believers in the truth of the Word of God because false teachers have taken over that word.

Satan loves to use well-known words and twist their meaning. Many of those calling themselves “evangelicals” today seek to “redefine Christianity.” It’s all about “change.” They are bringing new teachings to the church, teachings leading people to “New Age” practices such as deep-breathing contemplative prayer, yoga, chants, walking the labyrinth, channeling, Reiki, teaching heresies such as universalism (everyone gets saved) and that we are all gods.

They use Scripture …to deceive.

Ask anyone in the “emergent church movement” about the Lord Jesus Christ and the reason he came – and prepare yourself to hear soft and warm and “loving” and smooth words clearly presenting “another Christ.”

You won’t hear about SIN.

You won’t hear about HELL.

You won’t hear about God’s chastening of his people.

You won’t hear about the Cross.

But they WILL cleverly use Scripture …to support their positions.

“For I am the Lord, I do not change;”
Malachi 3:6

“Every word of God is pure;
he is a shield to those who put their trust in him.
Do not add to his words,
lest he rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”
Proverbs 30:5-6

It’s a dangerous day. Anyone who doesn’t know the Word of God will be easy prey. And so it is.
