2 Timothy 4:3-4 ESV | Church Hoppers?

3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound[a] teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4 ESV)

I was reading the scripture about all scripture being breathed out by God, 2 Tim 3:16-17, and then decided just to keep reading for the sake of reading and read the above. The first thing that came to my mind were those who church hop because they don’t like the way certain pastors/priests make them feel or the message they spread and so they just go to someone who is nicer or says the candy coated things that makes us feel warm inside.  (If the pastor is literally saying things that aren’t in scripture, then I’d say go for the hopping, because you don’t want to be fed lies either)  But I hope you know what I’m talking about.   If you don’t, I’m sorry.

Along with the church hoppers, this could mean the unchurched as well who think the bible is filled with fairy tales and what not.  I don’t know. But what are your thoughts on the verse?
