2 Timothy 4:1-5

I 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 longsuffering 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. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

In this letter we learn that the church “will not endure sound doctrine” but go after the lusts of their hearts. It is very plane to see that this has happened. Look at what people do today in the name of Christ. We cannot be persuaded by the wants of our own minds, but must believe what is written in the word of God. The word is the standard.
