A quote from Arthur Pink (1886–1952). If the time had arrived in his day... I wonder what we could say about the mess we see in churches today?

2 Timothy 4:1-4I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering 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.

That time has arrived! Church-goers today will not endure "sound doctrine." Those . . .

  • who preach the total depravity of man, 
  • who insist upon the imperative necessity of the new birth, 
  • who set forth the inflexible righteousness and holiness of God, and 
  • who warn against the eternal and conscious torment awaiting every rejecter of Christ,

find it almost impossible to obtain a hearing! Such preachers are regarded as puritanic pessimists, and are not wanted

In these degenerate times, the masses demand that which will soothe them in their sins--and amuse them while they journey down the Broad Road which leads to eternal destruction! The multitude is affected with "itching ears" which crave novelty and that which will amuse them.

Not only are many of our Seminaries cesspools of spiritual corruption... 

Not only are hundreds of our pulpits now filled by traitors to the cause they profess to champion... 

Not only is every cardinal doctrine of the faith attacked and denied by the very ones paid to defend them... 

But the evil effects of such teaching from our religious leaders have influenced multitudes of souls committed to their care. 

The man in the pew, following the lead of his teachers, has lost faith in the Bible as a Divine revelation, and in consequence, no longer submits to its authority.
