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 (II Timothy 4:3,4).
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come (II Timothy 3:1), when they will not endure sound doctrine, as our text verse indicates.
The Bible predicts a worldwide departure in the last days, from Christianity and the Bible to cunningly devised fables (II Peter 1:16).
Men will be ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (II Timothy 3:7). We think of our great universities with their brilliant professors and scientists, many of whom fall into this category. A great many in our apostate age feel they do not need God, and that man does live by bread alone. Furthermore, some modern theologians think of their relationship with God as a democracy, wherein men can cooperate, but definitely not submit.
Many of these intellectuals do not believe in either God or the Bible, but refer to Jesus merely as a good man. Logically, then, must they not conclude that the Savior is a product of evolution? Darwinian evolution is one of the tremendous fabrications used to discount special creation and deify sciencescience falsely so called (I Timothy 6:20). What a poor substitute! Scientists cannot produce life, even at the lowest level, nor can they produce genuine evidence that evolution has ever occurred.
Let us put our trust in the Biblical record. Earnest study and commitment to Christ as Savior and Lord will solve problems and provide answers in our hypocritical age of apostasy. JLG
