The Measuring Stick of God's Word

Yesterday, our pastor did a quick rundown of some of the best sermons he did in 2009. He hit upon a scripture that stayed with me.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall 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 3-4

I know this scripture, but it hit a resounding chord with me as I have seen this firsthand very recently. I have reconnected with many friends from High School on FaceBook. I went to two different Christian High Schools and have found friends from both. It grieves me that although many were grounded in the Word of God during High School, they are currently chasing around whatever is popular at the moment. What sounds good. So many spiritual "gurus" of today throw in a little scripture and lure in the unsuspecting Christian.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 even warns us about these deceitful teachers. They appear to be of God but they aren't. Even Satan can be transformed into an angel of light. The Word of God is the measure. Make sure you aren't turning your ears from the truth. Hold up the doctrines to the Word of God. If they don't measure up, THROW THEM OUT!
