We spend so much money on what we think is true but is so false. Yes, Satan is the god of this world and controls the money. So when we Christians get money, we don't focus it on Kingdom business. We focus it on church growth or it becomes me-centered. Seeing folks getting saved gets lost to feel-good songs, more people in pews (which equates to more income for the leaders).
I understand when Paul told Timothy that people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions. And heaven forbid that we speak out on those teachers, or anyone who claims to be anointed. The tragedy really occurs when give to what we really know is false (whether it be our money or our time). Just cause it itches our ears or give us goosebumps, doesn't mean it's genuine. Now, I'm not saying teaching has to be fire & brimstone, I hope you get what I'm trying to say.
It's one thing for teachers in their greed to exploit you with false words (from 2 Peter), but it's a travesty when you know you're being exploited but decide to place sponges in your ears and continually give to what you already know is false.
Now it would be interesting to see 2 John implemented today where it says this (from verses 10-11): If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works. What we'll do instead is cut off those who are actually doing the right thing, bury our heads in the sand when the truth is exposed and continually give to what is false.
Now is the time to stop giving to what we know is false so we can put our money & time towards Kingdom Business & not self-serving agendas.
