CHRISTIANS LEAVING GOD’S
2 Tim. 4:2-4 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (KJV) . . . This implies that sound doctrine will be considered as burdensome, something that “Christians” won’t endure. Biblical doctrine will not be looked on as favorable.
To obey sound doctrine involves spiritual discipline, serious diligence and making choices based on God’s Word that goes against the desires of the flesh.
What is sound doctrine? It is what is taught in the Holy Bible, including His precepts, His commandments . . . actually every word that is in His Holy Book, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21.
Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. (KJV) . . . I don’t know about you, but I know that many “Christians” today don’t agree with this. And it will get worse and worse with each passing day. Most “Christians” will NOT endure “sound doctrine” as the end looms closer and closer.
So, what will the people endure? Apostasy! What is apostasy? It is actually turning your back on God and doing your own thing. It provides the lusts of the flesh under the guise of what these people call “godliness.” Satan makes every attempt to undermine, pervert, distort, corrupt, slander, belittle and outright deny the Holy Scriptures by any and all means that he can, and he has millions of helpers. The end result of his never ending deception is apostasy; and it shall continue in leaps and bounds until there will be an apostate religion and church worldwide which its adherents will worship and follow the Antichrist, the man of lawlessness whom Satan shall empower.
God continually told the Israelites that IF they obeyed Him, they would be blessed; but IF they walked in disobedience, they would suffer devastating consequences for their sin. They would be separated from God, they would no longer have God’s guidance and protection, and they would experience God’s terrific wrath as He corrected and disciplined them. Israel’s repeated rebellion in the wilderness proved God is true to His Word.
Deut. 32:46-47 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.  For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it. (KJV) . . . Moses warned Israel.
1 Samuel 12:20-21 And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart;  And turn ye not aside: for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain. (KJV) . . . Samuel warned Israel three centuries later.
Not only is turning away from God “vanity,” or complete worthlessness, the process in doing so is absolute wickedness.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. (KJV) . . . Samuel not only tells us of the evil of rebelling against God, he also gives us insight that helps us recognize that Satan tries to induce us to disobey God. This is widely common today. Idolatry was the controlling issue back then . . . but what about today? The children of Israel were commanded not to have false gods in any form!
Exodus 20:3-4 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: (KJV)
Exodus 20:23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold. (KJV)
They heartedly agreed. Exodus 24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. (KJV) . . . Yet just a few days later, when Moses didn’t come back from Mount Sinai in a prompt manner, they rebelled and went against the promise they had made to God. They made a golden calf (Ex. 32:1-14). Aaron built an altar, oversaw the ritual and dedicated the feast “unto the Lord.” So, IF all this was done “unto the Lord” wasn’t it OK? Wouldn’t their worship of a ‘physical’ thing as well as the ‘spiritual’ stimulation of the ritual be acceptable to God?
We really need to understand the Biblical meaning of what idolatry is. The church today is definitely following the Israelites example. Most Christians would define idolatry as anything that takes God’s place in our lives. YES! That is absolutely true. But there is more. WHY is idolatry so critical?? Idols are “false gods” (Ps.96:5). Idols are items of deception and the creation of man and devils. Any worship of them is a delusion. The reverence given these gods consist of physical indulgence and sensuality. The so-called gods are physically represented and sensually worshipped. Most evangelicals know this, but what they don’t seem to understand is how idolatry undermines their worship of the true and living God!
God chose to reveal Himself to us through His Holy Word, NOT images that we make. Worship of the TRUE God must be through His Word, and according to His Word, or it is idolatry. For us to please God, we must worship Him in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24), NOT bowing down to man made images. God is Spirit . . . we CANNOT see Him! He is invisible (John 1:18).
The Bible encourages faith that is founded upon evidence, logic and reason. There is no faith in images. What can they do? Nothing! But there are millions who worship images, completely abandoning reason and chasing after idolatry. The same thing happened to the Israelites throughout their history. That is why they were chastened by God over and over again . . . for rebelling against the only One who could help them, and turning to stupid images who could do nothing for them. A form of idolatry and divination is called “praying through the icons” (images) which is absolute rebellion against Almighty God. The Bible tells us this is witchcraft (1 Sam.15:23), above. Who will you believe?
The evangelical church is rapidly sliding toward idolatry as it turns away from the Bible, and to visual imagery. A goal of one “Bible Society” is to put the entire Bible on video, to accommodate those people who have little desire to read God’s Word. The Jesus Film (a representation of Luke’s Gospel), is one of the evangelical’s efforts. The Passion of Christ is another attempt of so-called Christians. There shall be many more in the future. BEWARE! I, personally, am completely against this. Any film I have ever seen, does NOT agree with the Bible. How Mel Gibson could possibly have the gall to impersonate (portray, pretend to be) the Lord Jesus Christ is beyond me! May God have mercy on his soul. (My humble opinion.)
Any film/video cannot possibly be used to present the Bible visually without becoming idolatrous. The images are not only historically false but they are dreamed up by the screenwriter or director and are designed to manipulate the senses and emotions of those watching. Movements within the evangelical church are turning the next generation away from the Truth of the Bible and TO an idolatry of experimentalism. BEWARE! Stay deep within the Word of God. Worship Him in Spirit and Truth.
