June 7, 2023

With the internet, YouTube, and other media outlets, we have access to many dynamic preachers, and you can find just about anyone who agrees with your way of thinking. However, we are not always good at knowing the scriptures as God intended, so if we are not careful, some of those preachers will lead us to eternal death. I know I probably push the issue of reading your Bible too much, but that's the only way to ensure you receive God's intended message. We need to verify that what is being preached matches the scriptures; the only way to do this is to know them. Like anybody else, I love the teaching on love, but there is more to God than love and tolerance, and if you don't know about God's wrath and justice, you may think you are fine skipping over those parts of scripture. Many will be sorry when they find out they have been led astray for listening to what their itchy ears wanted to hear. Pray for discernment, look up anything that sounds off, and like most good preachers will tell you, eat the meat and spit out the bones because even a good preacher can get it wrong occasionally.

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
