11-2-2017 Doctrine By The People

“That this is a rebellious people, Lying children, Children who will not hear the law of the LORD; Who say to the seers, ‘Do not see,’ And to the prophets, ‘Do not prophesy to us right things; Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits’” (Isaiah 30:9-10 NKJV). Once prophets said what people wanted them to say, they no longer preached the Word of God, and people were not obedient to God. The same applies today. Preachers who preach what people want, do not represent the Word of God. Generally, people “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” (2 Timothy 4:3-4 NKJV).
