Grandmom’s Bible, #4

Below is an entry from the blogsite of Mrs. Knack.  It is perfect for “Grandmom’s Bible” because it reveals all of the fallacious froth that people gravitate towards.  I love the material on “itching ears” and the picture of the three snakes’ little tongues in the ear.  It says it all.  You can access her blogsite right here:

Scratch My Itching Ears

2 Timothy 4:3&4: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

Scratch my itching ears
Tell me what I want to hear
Do not tell me what I need
It might convict me to His will, heed
I want to feel that my sin is okay
That I will not reap the consequences of it one day
That God holds nothing against me
That overlooking my habitual sin is easy
That though I chose to remain bound, I am free
That that which I do but should not, no one sees
Tell me what I want to hear
The fluffy, warm and fuzzy stuff that my flesh holds so dear
Give no regard to my spirit and soul
Tell me that pleasing my flesh, on me will have no toll
My ears they itch so very much
Though they can be wholly healed by the Master’s touch
I refuse to receive it and His easy yoke
Despite the one I have being heavy enough to choke
I want you to tell me that I know what is best
That my choices did not cause all of this turmoil and mess
That the life I choose to live is okay with Him
The He does not see my living according to fleshly whims
So, come on, you can do it, scratch my itching ears
You can do it despite destruction to me drawing near
