Truth Hurts

2 Timothy 4:3-4
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.

“Australian megachurch Hillsong founder Pastor Brian Houston has sent a message to all of his church campuses saying gays and lesbians should be welcomed in the church”. The truth is hard, sometimes even painful. But no one is more compassionate than God; no one can be more accepting of people than He is. After all He created us and then sent His Son to come and die for us after we sinned. The road is narrow, and you can’t save a sinner by pretending sin is acceptable. Naturally, people like their feelings not to be hurt, even if it means withholding the truth. But if we value our souls, let us not allow ourselves to be part of those who want the Bible to be twisted to suit our egos, and let us not be shy to stand by the biblical truth, even if unpopular.
