Paul left Timothy in Ephesus to “charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies” (1 Timothy 1:3-4 NKJV). A “fable” is a fictitious story which lacks facts to establish it. The Egyptian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman gods and goddesses were pure “mythology.” Aesop’s Fables, “Frozen,” Pinocchio, Superman, Santa Claus, Link, Lara Croft, Evolution and Climate Change are also “myths.” When children’s minds are filled and shaped by these “myths,” they can’t function well in the “real world.” God condemned false prophets who claimed “I have dreamed,” and “who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal” (Jeremiah 23:25-27 NKJV). The facts of God are crowded out by fantasies!
