The Word Of God Doesn’t Change With The Culture

May 4

“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…”
2 Timothy 4:2-3

There has never been a time when this passage has been more obvious than at the present time.

They will not endure sound doctrine…

Many have heaped up to themselves teachers who teach what they want to hear, how they can “prosper” in all areas of life, while anyone preaching the truth is scorned, laughed at, and branded all kinds of hateful names.

The Word of God does not change with the changing culture. The Word of God remains for all time. But the time has come in these last days, when many simply will not endure sound doctrine.

Just as it was foretold.

“For the message of the Cross is foolishness
to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved
it is the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 1:18

The cross is an instrument of death. We are to take up our cross daily, not our rolodex, die to ourselves, and follow Christ.

Jesus Christ was an extreme right-wing, narrow-minded fundamentalist. He didn’t change his message for the sake of the culture. The Word of God does not change.

And that’s the hard truth they cannot stand.
