II Tim. 4:3-4  For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to right teaching.  They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever they want to hear.  They will reject the truth and follow strange myths.

It is here, right now.  People for the most part do not listen to right teaching, nor do they want to.  They buy into all sorts of false teachings, but refuse to change their minds about Biblical truth.  They will listen to those things which make them feel good and do not require much out of them.  They want teachings that suit their thinking.  They want others to do their thinking for them. 

People want teachers who will tell them what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear.  Those who stick to the Word of God and do not compromise it for the sake of the people they serve are getting fewer and fewer.  People want an easy road to heaven and gravitate towards those who promise it.  They want to hear those things that excite them instead of those things which challenge and change them.  People are quickly becoming anemic as far as holy living is concerned.  They are quick to chase after anything but the truth of God's Word.

We need to be very discerning in these last days.  We need to be sure we examine the things we hear with the Word of God.  We need to listen with critical ears letting only the Word of God be the standard whereby we live.  We need to be wise enough to dismiss and not pay attention to those who teach another Gospel.  We need to hold them accountable if they are in our churches.  We must not give people what they want; we must give them what they need in order to be made holy, a people after God's own heart.
