2 Timothy 2:14-17

14 Keep reminding God’s people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. 17 Their teaching will spread like gangrene.

  1. Godless chatter. Quarreling over words. Both of these things insinuate men interjecting their own thoughts and not concentrating on the word of God and its truth. We can add nothing to the word and we have no thoughts that are greater than His. All we can do is detract from His message and His purpose by inserting ourselves.
