“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)
If you have watched from Australia and on Prime Video the “McLeod’s Daughters”, you know the Aussies like to use the phrase, “sort it out” as in You have to sort it out or I am going to sort it out, which means in our American lingo we have a problem to solve, or in progressive business environments, we have an issue to deal with. Well, the Church, especially in America, and in particular the Southern Baptist Convention that has allowed leaders of Scofield theology to take and retain control right up to the current President of the SBC, MUST IN THE NATURE OF CONTEND FOR THE FAITH ONCE FOR ALL DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS, sort out this sort of the Christian Fables of II Timothy. Go, that is, no farther or less than the Word of God in II Timothy.
Contemporary Preachers and Pastors are smarter than past generations of their counterparts in that they have learned, no doubt in theological training, to select get along with their congregation by selective pick and choose preaching of the Bible, allowing them to rise to the power of mega-churches and grow churches based on numbers. This also provides them and their families financial security along with being able to save their future retirement in the Relief and Annuity Board of for example the SBC. Many of this sort have been able also to become popular, go on TV and sell books, and become millionaires as has done Dr. Jeffress of the FBC of Dallas, who has an estimated worth of 7 million dollars. Dr. Charles Stanley who yearly read through the book “How to grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, a mystic, using it as a manual for both personal growth and church growth, has also become a millionaire with TV and his books in spite of the fact that his church has restricted his ministry except to preaching because of his divorce. These men like Adrian Rogers of the TV program “Love worth Finding” have managed to remain popular and build (not grow) large churches of “filling a church with empty people” as Gaines Dobbins predicted, with good PR cover ups that Love Worth Finding in spite of his program for the SBC of “conservative resurgence”, falsely so called with also effective PR, has based on Scofield theology killed the love, spirit, and evangelism of the SBC. Charles Stanley, one of the conspirators along with Rogers, and Criswell, Judge Pressler, and Paige Patterson of the 10 year plan to take control of the SBC, which they did in about 1980-1990, has a similar disguise with his TV program “In Touch”, in spirt of getting out of touch with the faith once for all delivered to the saints with a priority for Scofield theology. You have to give them an A plus for popularity, success and wealth, professionalism, and theology; yet they are the very sort as will be proven in the pages of this book.
“Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly-dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth..”
