"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." 2 Timothy 4:3-4No2 KJV<?
Feelings, more often than not, are a product of carnal lust. The Holy Scripture tells us, our bodies are carnal, sold under sin; in [our] flesh dwelleth no good thing. Based on this Truth, can I depend on feelings to guide me into Truth?
While it is true that faith produces feelings, feelings never produce faith. So much heresy is being preached as gospel. Scripture is being interpreted based on everyday experience and historical writings rather than letting God be true and every man a liar. If it can't be said with Holy Scripture, it's not worth the pen and ink, breath, or, in our day, the electricity to produce it.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. God's Word is its own interpreter. It comes with step by step tutorials from the Author Himself. The Spirit of truth will guide you into all truth.
Just because a man preaches using the Word of God, does not mean he is preaching Truth. If the still small Voice within you does not bear witness that he speaks Truth, reject it and the man.
Many have no still small Voice of the Holy Spirit to guide them. They follow feelings instead of Truth. They have allowed human reason to pollute Truth and make it a lie, because it just feels right.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. They follow men who use Truth for gain, because what they say makes them feel spiritual. Unless they change, eternal torment is their destiny.
They have become vain in their imaginations, and changed the truth of God into a lie. Millions place feelings above the Word of God in their search for Truth.
Discomfort is not bad. Not all medicine tastes good. How do you determine Truth? If you don't hear the still small Voice, ask Jesus to save you and send His Spirit to guide you. Your heavenly Father [will] give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Have you asked? Ask, and it shall be given you... God promised.
The ears that itch to hear men spew,
Something pleasing, something new;
Rejecting Truth and Jesus name,
Will spend eternity in flame. ~CGP
Do your ears itch for some new pleasing truth, or is your heart fixed on the old unchanging Truth of God's Word? For I am the LORD, I change not. Heretics and heresies morph to fit the mood. Truth determines the mood. Stick with God's Truth and you will experience joy unspeakable and full of glory.
"Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures." James 1:16-18 KJV
