The Word and the Spirit alone must be our guide.

bibleWe are living in strange days I am sure you will agree. Days in which folks no longer listen to sound doctrine. In 2:4 Tim we are warned of such days and rightly so of course. Paul tells Timothy that people will look for teachers who will tell them what their itching ears want to hear. The old phrase  sola scriptura is latin for scripture alone. It was the battle cry of the reformation. It was the sword that sent a tremendous blow into the heart of religiousity. The traditions of men had swamped the truth and religious leaders made the people bear heavy external burdens without any regard to their internal spiritual state. All that mattered was what was seen on the outside.

And so, we often regard this warning from Paul as pertaining to the last days meaning perhaps the last of the last days for surely we have been living in the latter days since the birthing of the Church. Yet in this chapter Paul says “ for the time will come.” What time? Our time? His time? After he dies? A progression or better still a regression of all of these? Listen to what Paul says in Acts 20 to people he would not see again, his last words to them so to speak…..

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (Act 20:28-31)
