John Allan speaks on "Heaping Up Teachers" on Seeking the Lost - International Radio.
When you have an itch, you want to scratch it.
But what if the "itch" you have is a desire to hear only what you want to hear? Something that isn't true, but sounds good?
Sometimes the truth is hard. When that happens we're faced with a choice: Accept the truth, or reject it and search for people who will say what we want to hear.
In 2 Timothy 4:3-4 Paul warned Timothy about people who "will not endure sound doctrine". Because of their itching ears they would "heap up for themselves teachers". But those teachers would lead those listeners away from the truth and off into fables.
In this lesson we examine 2 Timothy 4:1-4 with hope that we can strengthen ourselves so we'll always want to heed God's word.
