The last generation will only hear things that “tickle their ears” (Page 4)

Tickle Ear

For the time will come when people 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. – 2 Timothy 4:3

One warning about the last generation is that they can only hear things that “tickle their ears” or make them feel good (see II Timothy 4:3-4). It is hard to imagine a generation that better fits that description than the one now emerging. They have been conditioned to reject, and even be offended by, anything that challenges the humanistic propaganda they have been fed through education, entertainment, and the media. Previous generations have had their own fits of worldliness and carnality, but never have we seen the kind of violence and outrage that the emerging generation displays toward ideas that challenge their safe spaces and comfort zones. Such a “safe place” mentality could not be a more dangerous place, and this will ultimately lead to the most terrible consequences of all.

Is there anything we can do to help those in such eternal jeopardy? Yes there is. Read here

    Hi Gene,

    lk 4.5

    And he led him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

    And the devil said to him

    ’I will give you all this domain and all it’s glory; for it has been handed over to me,

    and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if you worship before me, it shall all be yours’

     

    We know that the devil is a liar, but how much of his claims made here are true?

    Does he hold the power to give riches and power on earth?

    When was the right handed to him?

    Jesus did not deny what he said.

    Is not poverty an advantage in the sight of God?

    Bleesed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of God

    Nick….Amen brother, those that preach for filthy lucre are enimies of Christ Jesus, as they go about sporting themselves without fear, they are most assuredly the servants of Satan, whose end is near, their lavish living proves it over and over.

    1 Pet 5:2….Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversite there of, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. Verse 3, .. Neither as being lords over GOD’S heritage, but being “examples” to the flock.

    Tell us AndrewAD, what kind of “examples” are those money grabbing liers setting. Is it not to use people and grab all the money you can out of the needy and poor, and aged, and give false hope to the inferimed, i tell you the fires of hell are ready burning for them. They may kid themselves and others all they want to, but surely they shall give account. Woe unto them!

    AndrewAD, show us where any true deciple of Jesus, ever lived lavishly, off the brethern, tell us of one. Even Jesus was among us as a poor person as a servant, was he not vexed with our inferimites, what about PAUL surely he could have been “RICH”, but no he even worked as a tent maker to help pay for his keep, all the while watching over 27 churches. All the apostles died poor in mammon, but rich in FAITH, real faith AndrewAD. THE KIND GAIND BY REAL “EVIDENCE”, not suppositions given by liers.

    Peace and love to you and yours……gene

    Gene,

    Had you sent your money to one of the televangelists and then sent them your testimony they may have used it to boost their ministry and then you’d really be convinced they were of God. That’s how the propaganda works but the majority of people who send their money can’t even afford to pay their bills. They know this and prey upon them with bible promises of “prove God” but when it never works it’s guilt trips and get your heart right, and give more money. And yes Praise the Lord anyway!!! It’s all a sham.

    Oh I just saw the next page. So you think I am in support of the money grubbers huh? Did I ever say I was? I asked you pertinent questions on faith and you give the exact same speil as they do which is why I brought it up.

    AndrewAD. …no my point was i never was trying to get money, from any one, as they do. I “only” cared about God showing me he existed and was he in my personal life. If nothing would have happened after the “first” time i took God’s challenge, i would have never tithe again. I could have given that tithe to any church or anyone, and the same result would have happened, because it had “nothing” to do with money, just proof of his existence in “my” life. Infact i don’t believe tithing is even required at all today.

    I even once had a scripturial descussion with some elders of the WWCG, for 6 hours, showing them every scripture proving we are not under any thithing laws at all. They finally admitted, there was no scriptural proof for tithing in the NEW TESTEMENT CHURCH. There is proof of giving, BUT TITHING NO. But they refused to quit preaching tithing, even telling people they would go to hell if they did not tithe’. So i left that church. Tithing was a form of “tax” that took care of the LEVITES, who supplied many services to the other 12, tribes of Israel, they were their doctors, Judges, Preist’s teachers of the words of God, they could not own property, their complete livelihood was on the tithes they collected from the rest of the tribes. Tithes were simply a form of taxes, it was a Law, in ISRAEL.

    But today it is not required, our taxes cover that and way more.

    I apsolutely do not support any of those televangelist’s at all, as to what i have posted, prayer given in earnest produces far more evidence to all those who truly believe, my point is GOD GIVES EVIDENCE OF HIM BEING IN OUR LIVES. Did he not say, “I am found by them that “seek” me”. My overall point is we each need our own “PERSONAL”, EVIDENCE, of GOD. Those who God the Father is with, he will show himself to them. SINCERE PRAYER IS THE BEST WAY. IMO

    peace and love to you and yours. …..gene

    It is good to share our testimony. While people can debunk understanding, science, beliefs, we all have our very own testimony of God working in our lives. No one can take that away from us.

    People can call you you a liar or whatever, but in your heart you know when God reaches out. Our own faith is not absolute proof of God to others,  but to yourself. Others need to have their own faith in God.

    faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    Hi T8,

    Yes calling others liars is your specialty.

    Every word is noted.

    Who is the liar, the one who denies Jesus is the Christ.

    I show you that Jesus was born the Christ.

    A man under inspiration of the Holy Spirit sees the Christ.

    But Nick teaches that he was not the Christ and tries to correct me when I quote the scripture.

    And who is the liar, but he who denies Jesus is the Christ.

    Your problem is the scripture not me.

    Shooting the messenger doesn’t rewrite scripture.

    Does it?
