Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
One of the characteristics of end of this age will, according to Scripture be a tendency to prefer fairy tales over the solid truth of the Word of God. The Apostle says it like this,
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; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:3, 4). The word translated fables is muthos and it means a fiction or a story that is divorced from the Truth.
Now if you doubt that we have arrived at that juncture, consider this: We now believe we can determine our own gender (we have that choice) change our age, and even our species and all such self-defined identities must be enshrined in anti-discrimination law. If the situation were not so tragic it would be hilarious. So how did we reach this stage? Paul tells us in Romans 1 where he writes, Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:21, 22).
If we are ever to escape this state of folly and foolishness, we must return to the Word of God. Jesus said, Sanctify them through Thy Truth – Thy Word is Truth.
