Paul's Charge To Timothy

3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound teaching, but will assemble to themselves teachers who will satisfy what their "itching ears" want to hear. 4 They will refuse to listen to the truth and will turn their attention to myths. 5 But you should be sober-minded about everything, [willing to] endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
