There is no doubt nor question that we have entered into perilous times, times hard to deal with one translation says. Years ago, the Lord told me that deception was coming and to teach the people to depend on Him for everything. I did not fully understand what the Lord was warning me about at first but I do now. I often wonder what the apostle Paul would do if he could visit the “modern” church. In Paul’s day he turned a man over to satan for the destruction of the flesh because he had his father’s wife.
What would Paul do to the seeker friendly churches that celebrate and bless same sex unions? My Bible says Jesus is the head of the church, not men. We cannot alter God’s Word to accommodate the lusts of our flesh.
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts they shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.
No matter what manner of perversion a man wants to practice, he can find a preacher that will justify him. I now understand the Scripture that says a man will deceive his own heart. Deceit can be hidden for only so long and then judgement exposes the sin and the sinner. Hold fast to sound doctrine, you will never regret it.
