For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths.
– 2 Timothy 4:3-4
That time is now…more than ever before! Many who claim to be Christian, are interpreting Christianity in a manner to suit them. Many are rejecting their Catholic faith (they no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching) because, they claim, it hasn’t kept up with the times…which basically means that it does not condone the manner in which they want to live their own life. These are the ones who look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.
How sad it is that so many reject the truth. How sad it is that by doing so, they reject Christ…who is the Truth!
My Lord and my God, Your Word is life.
My Lord Jesus, Your teachings are the truth – You are the Truth!
Lord, stop me from ever seeking
whatever suits my selfishness and my desires.
Remove the scales from the eyes of my heart, O Lord,
and let me see and delight in Your truth.
Free my intellect from its constraints and pride,
and let it begin to understand and acknowledge
the beauty and reality of Your truth.
For this I pray. Amen.
