2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NLT)
3 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. 4 They will reject the truth and chase after myths.

The words of the Apostle Paul teach us that people need to hear the truth and ministers must resign themselves to speaking the truth. If not people will gratify themselves with their own beliefs and turn from the truth of God. They will look for those willing to tell them what they want to hear instead of hearing the truth as it should be presented

From Mark S. Wheeler, �Marks of a Servant�, Discipleship Journal (Nov/Dec 1987), �When the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius destroyed the city [of Pompeii in A.D. 79], many people were buried in the ruins. Some took cover underground, and the place became their burial chamber. Those who chose a high hiding place were also unable to escape destruction. But a Roman sentinel was found at the city gate, his hands still grasping his weapon. That was where he had been placed by the captain. While the earth shook beneath him, while the flood of ashes and cinders overwhelmed him, he stood at his post; and it was there he was found a thousand years later.� Are you willing to stand firm in your faith of Jesus Christ? Let others know the truth and never let it be hidden by false myths or false stories.
