Ointment For The Itch

The time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. (2 Timothy 4:3, NIV 1984).

My Musings – The time has come. What are some things that itching ears want to hear these days? Many paths to God (see yesterday’s musings). Why would you want any other path than the one God provided? No hell. Wishing it were not so does not make it not so. Right and wrong are relative. That’s not what Jesus said. Live a “good” life and things will work in the end. Good by whose standard? And I could go on.

My Advice – Itching ears are problematic. They can be temporarily soothed, like applying ointment to an itch. Masking the symptoms do not remove the cause, which eventually will have to be dealt with. Don’t gather with the charlatans. It may be natural to soothe the ears rather than listening with them, but the truth needs to be heard.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
