Liking Itching Ears
As an author, I like to check where my books are being sold and often check on their Amazon listings. It was amusing to find that the Amazon algorithm had recommended a useful product for people who were buying my new book, No Time for Itching Ears. It suggested that they buy a cream that treats fungal infections in your ear!
The title of the book was actually taken from 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4 ESV)
This verse refers to my belief that so much of the drifting away from biblical truth that I see in modern evangelicalism is due to not having a strong foundation on the truth of the book of Genesis. Therefore, my book looks at several important Christian doctrines, such as the Trinity, the Deity of Christ and the Inerrancy of Scripture, and shows that the foundation of these important truths is indeed built on Genesis.
I believe in the importance of this book, and am pleased that the book’s Facebook page (facebook.com/NoTimeForItchingEars) has built up about 100 likes in a very short space of time. If you also believe that this is no time for itching ears, then please go and “like” the page. While you are there, “like” our Creation Today page, then come back to the Creation Store and buy the book. The purchase of the anti-fungal cream is optional.
