10AM Sunday 7/21/19 “Spiritual Power For Victory” – 2Timothy4

The Bible tells us that in the Last Days people will only listen to teachers who will tell them what they want to hear. This perfectly describes the “seeker friendly” movement today. They send 10,000 letters out into a community asking people what they want in a church. They may receive 5,000 responses, & out of the 5,000 they may get 500 to commit to coming for a period of time, if the church can give them what they want. And so the church entertains the people, telling them what they want to hear (2 Tim.4). But it is like cotton candy; sweet, but without substance, and it will make you sick & weak. We need a healthy variety in our spiritual diet to be strong enough to finish the Race & win the Battle. Only the Bible gives us everything we need for a strong, Spiritual Life (Act 2:42 & 2 Peter 1:3). God warned against the day theater would take the place of Bible teaching.   If the message to the church is dictated by the “felt needs” of those who attend, no one will ever be transformed, and made spiritually strong enough to finish the Spiritual Race and win the Spiritual War
