Teaching truth

Posted by nextstepministrieslv on October 20, 2009 at 8:13 PM

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?

Hey Walt,
It is no surprise to me that there are no comments on this one because alot of people don't want to admit or take the time to check what their pastor is preaching on because at the end of the service they feel great and they want to hold on to that. I have always loved the fact that all you preach has been the truth it doesn't always make me feel good but once I get over the shock of it I know that I am okay, and that I was told the truth. You don't care about numbers all you care about is the Truth and I love and respect you for it.

Just as grace multiplies as sin does, so do those preachers willing to compromise the gospel. But of course this age is ruled by satan, so it's not unexpected.
