For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables (2nd Timothy 4:3-4).
It’s difficult to accept correction, to be told we have to change. The Word of God is our instructions for living according to the Word of God, there is no other way around it. Either we will live according to His Word or we will reject His Word, we can’t live in between, it’s either holiness, being separated from the world or living a life of hypocrisy. Many times Christians will seek out churches that will give them a good feeling, indoctrinating them to think on the things of the world rather than giving them Bibilical teachings. This world will one day pass away, Jesus is on His way back for the church, and He is coming for a church without a wrinkle, blemish or a spot (That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish – Ephesians 5:27).
Wrinkle meaning we should be filled with His Spirit, flowing in righteousness like running water. Spot, we shouldn’t have any defect (nothing lacking in our spiritual walk). Nothing defecting our spirit by our emotions, nothing that would be a disgrace. Blemish, meaning faultless through our righteousness in Christ Jesus when we have submitted ourselves to God and His Word.
In many churches sound doctrine isn’t taught; ministers preach or teach what will make the congregation feel at ease, nothing that will make them search the Scriptures to see if they are living according to the Word of God. This is why there is so many different religions because people pick and choose what they will adhere to. If the teaching is coming against their lifestyle they will dismiss what they heard and continue live a lifestyle of sin because according to them that’s not what God meant.
“He know we are human, He knows I have different feelings that need to be gratifie”. Take time read and study the Word of God for yourself to make sure you’re being taught sound doctrine which is according to the Word of God. Search yourself to see if your lifestyle is in line with the Word of God (Examine yourselves whether ye be in the faith, prove your ownselves. Know ye not your own selves how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates -2nd Corinthians 5:13). We examine ourselves by the Word of God, nothing else. If our hearts are not reprobated, the Word of God will convict our hearts, that is why the Adversary influences people not to read the Word of God.
The Word of God cleanses our heart, it soften it from what the world has influenced. No way one can continue to read God’s Word and his or heart does not change. Just as much as people allow the world to influence them, they should take time listen to Christian music, listen to the gospel, read the Word of God. Make it a prority to meet with God on a daily basis in prayer. If one seek God with their whole heart, they will find Him.
