The "YouTube Syndrome"

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)

It would be difficult to estimate the number of sermons, articles and chapters in books teaching something about the spiritual deception of our times which begin by quoting 2 Timothy 4:3-4, so if you’re expecting yet another such exposition, be warned this is not going to precisely follow that path. Whereas this is speaking about the outright deceived, those who willfully “turn away their ears from the truth” and could care less if someone’s teaching is genuinely scriptural (or that someone even quotes Scripture), there seems to be a parallel problem among a great many who proclaim they only follow “biblical” teachers and only seek those who preach the substance of the Word. And that problem has to do with their failure to actually follow through with 1 John 4:1, to test all things by the measure of God’s Word. What happens when those who say the Word is important to them don’t really read and apply it any more than those who are outright deceived and following false teachers? Is there really a discernible spiritual difference between the two?
