On the Day of Judgment when we stand before the Lord, can we account for our lack of obedience to His commands by referring to what others taught us? If our teachers do not give us the full counsel of God but instead tickle our itching ears, they will be judged strictly (James 3:1). But should we think that we will not be held accountable for being fruitless? We all have access to God’s Holy Word.Unfortunately in many churches today, the emphasis is on what to do in order to secure God’s blessings and comfort and “success” in this life. This teaching sells and brings the crowds. But Scripture warns us to beware of the many false prophets and false teachings which are proliferating in the end times. There is relatively very little teaching on what we must do in order to stand before the Son of Man on the great and dreadful day of His Coming. In light of eternity, this is far more important than God’s temporal blessings in this life on earth. Malachi 4:5 “Lo, I am sending to you Elijah the prophet, Before the coming of the day of Jehovah, The great and the fearful.” (Young’s Literal Translation)

Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. James3:1
