"Sound Bible-preaching, Bible-teaching churches ... are very few and far between" in Latin America, maintains Matt McGhee of Ligonier Ministries. Matt addresses this topic on today's Footsteps. As you listen to the program, think about this fact: the Apostle Paul predicted that many churches would abandon "sound teaching." Here's what Paul wrote to Timothy, his "beloved child" (2 Timothy 1:2, ESV) in the faith:
"I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths." (2 Timothy 4:1-4, ESV)
Paul predicted "the time is coming," and I believe that time is now upon us.
