WATERED DOWN RELIGION

 
2 Timothy 4:3

 
"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." NIV

 
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears." NIV


The Christian life is a narrow, lonely, and at times difficult path. For true Christians it is a way of joy and peace, walking Godly in faith. For carnal men, this narrow way requires too much and puts a crimp in the lifestyle they want to live. In order to have some form of godliness, they associate themselves with teachers and groups who speak safe, comfortable words. Words that don't require the giving of self or forsaking the sinful lifestyles they are living.


Heavenly Father, search our hearts to see if we have turned to a comfortable Christianity so that we can get our hearts right in Your eyes. We ask that You would lead us to those who hang on to false teaching. Prepare their hearts by the Holy Spirit to receive the Truth of the Gospel and repentance. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.

This is great. I also like the ubiquitous comment, "I'm spiritual, but not religious."

Hello,

I have visited your blog and enjoyed it very much. It has a great inspiration.

Would you like to visit my weblog which I created in Nov 2010?

My wife and I are Iranian and live in the UK. We love Jesus and our weblog is mostly about our Lord. Since we are Iranian we have added some Persian topics to the weblog, but you can read and watch English ones.

Our weblog is http://creation-to-eternity.blogspot.com

God Bless,

Shapour.
