II Timothy 4:3-4 ” For 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. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”

There’s nothing more uncomfortable than the conviction of the Lord as He shines the light of truth onto our sinful lives.  Conscience-stricken, we nervously look for a way to escape the situation and the guilty feelings that are overwhelming us.  Humans don’t like feeling convicted…instead, we’d rather hear  lovely, benign  platitudes and feel-good stories that don’t offend.  Over history, mankind has fabricated falsehoods in their minds…lying, deceiving fables and myths that go against the teachings of the Bible…but help to make them feel less guilty about their own forbidden and unrighteous desires. These fables and myths gloss-over doctrinal truth…rejecting the Gospel and deceiving the listener.
