THE SECOND EPISTLE OF PAUL TO TIMOTHY - Chapter 2 - Verse 16

Verse 16. But shun profane and vain babblings. See Barnes "1 Ti 6:20".

 

For they will increase unto more ungodliness. Their tendency is to alienate the soul from God, and to lead to impiety. Such kinds of disputation are not merely a waste of time, they are productive of positive mischief. A man fond of contention in religious things is seldom one who has much love for the practical duties of piety, or any very deep sense of the distinction between right and wrong. You will not usually look for him in the place of prayer, nor can you expect his aid in the conversion of sinners, nor will you find that he has any very strict views of religious obligation.
