In 2 Timothy 4:1-4(KJV),"I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instnt in season,out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall theyheap to themselves reachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry."God is still good regardless of what's going on if God is in it. There is no one church or any particular denomination or non-denomination that is the only church going to heaven. All of God's churches will be there if the people live right.
I am reminded of 2 Timothy 4:1-3. This letter was written by Apostle Paul to young Timothy. The letter reminded him of the condition that the people would be in. Today and then, people do not want to hear sound doctrine. People want to play church, dress up in any kind of way, short dresses, short patience, looking like they going to the ballroom. This group of people does not want to be corrected. Their ears have been tickle and it is not sound doctrine. I still believe it is holiness or hell.
The Pastor should teach the Word of God.Preaching is the God-ordained means to prevent defection from the truth. Teachers who apeal to itching ears tell people what they want to hear, not what they need to hear. Dressing any kind of way for church tells us that you do not reverence the Holy One. Even being saved you got to go through something. Apostle Paul was grooming Young Timothy for what he'll encounter. That is happening in the church today. Everything in us got to come out if we want to see Jesus.
This is something for you to think about if you are a Christian that wants to be committed to the True and Living God. Thanks for reading this thought.
