From the Morning Bible Readings

Posted by Kendall Harmon

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. 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 likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.

--2 Timothy 4:1-4

I have wanted to cite this verse from Paul a number of times in response to the words and actions of the revisionists who have taken control of the ECUSA, but didn’t.

There is another part of Scripture that warns of the judgement that will come upon clergy who are false teachers.  The two verses go together.

The New Testament Church was not open to new ideas and a variety of opinions.  This is one of many ways we have fallen.
