Itching ears ...

"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths." (2Tim 4:3)

They are doing this because they are searching for a "NICE NEWS" and not for the GOOD NEWS. .... Nowadays everything MUST be nice, otherwise some people feel "upset" or "offended" ... For them the Good News about the sin and the necessity of conversion as well as about Jesus Christ liberating us from the slavery of sin through His Passion, Death and Resurrection is upsetting and offensive... It certainly is not nice !!!! So they are searching for teachers, who will say them what they would like to hear. This is a very sad reality and -most probably- the cutest invention of devil ...

All those who are searching for the "Nice News" will never listen to the things like that: 

"The Moral Tsunami is essentially a description of the sexual revolution that has swept through modern civilization. The three waves of contraception, cultural immorality, and pornography have virtually destroyed the moral foundations of society—particularly in the West (which has merely exported debauchery to the rest of the world.) [1] What we are seeing today is the debris left behind these destructive waves. Everything today has been covered in the silt of impurity; the definition of marriage has been toppled; and our sexual identities, which carry a theology of the image of God, have splintered into a multitude of ambiguities. Pope Benedict’s comparison of our times to the collapse of the Roman Empire is even more relevant now than when he spoke of it at Christmas four years ago."
