2 Timothy 4:3-4 NKJV
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
One key thing that you must consider when we talk about health is your diet. What you eat determines what kind of health you will have. Today because of the kind of life we live, many people opt for fast foods and it shows.
Many people today suffer from what we call lifestyle diseases and the numbers keep rising.
The same applies to the spiritual man. What we feed him on will determine how strong and healthy he will be. Paul is warning Timothy about a time when people will not endure sound doctrine and that time is now. With the influx of information and entertainment, people have choices and many are gravitating towards things that don’t add any eternal value to their life.
All manner of strange doctrines are being preached out there and many are falling for them because they do not take time to read the word for themselves to know the truth.
Entertainment is another distraction that this generation has to fight. We have so much that is being thrown at us in the form of entertainment and most of it is promoting values and lifestyles that are contrary to God’s word. As it is said, garbage in and garbage out.
