Many pastors are afraid to teach the true message that the bible hold because they fear rejection from the congregation. 2Timothy 4:3, and 4 speaks of this and shows the true wisdom off God in preparing us for it: "There will be a time when they will not put up with healthful teaching but according to their own desires will accumulate teachers for themselves to satisfy their itching ears..." This means people will dictate what they want to hear from the pulpit and won't accept anyone who doesn't teach them as they want to be taught. How ridiculous! You wouldn't allow that in school, so why does it occur within the church where our very salvation is at issue? Did Jesus or the prophets cater to what the people wanted to hear? Or rather, did they not BOLDLY deliver the true message from God?
