For there will be a time when people will not tolerate sound teaching. Instead, following their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves, because they have an insatiable curiosity to hear new things. And they will turn away from hearing the truth, but on the other hand they will turn aside to myths.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 NET
Truth is truth. But that won’t always be the case according to the way some believe and practice their faith.
Paul told Timothy that a time would come when people don’t really care about God’s Word.
Instead, they will want to hear about new and exciting teachings. And, they will turn away or abandon the truth to hear what they want to hear.
There is no substitute for the Word of God! Period, end of story!
Notice that the lack of attention and obedience to the Word of God causes people to go off and chase after things that are myths or not of God.
These people replace God’s Word with lies. And there are many people out there who will help perpetuate these lies, teachers who will tell you exactly what you want to hear.
Your responsibility is to know the Word of God and identify false teachings and false teachers. You can only do that by knowing His Word.
Lord, help me to understand You Word through the power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to identify what is from You.
