Choices (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires.

Is the time upon us,
prophesied as such,
when some will no longer
give their hearts
to sound doctrine?

Their ears itch
for pleasant vices,
they long for
the sweetness
of corruption.

They wish to hear words,
in the midst
of drunken indiscretions,
condoning their sin
as God's truth.

In their desire
to live a life
of irresponsible choices
they separate themselves
from the love of God
and consume myths.
