(2 Timothy 2:16 NLT) Avoid worthless, foolish talk that only leads to more godless behavior.
(2 Timothy 2:23-25 NLT) Again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people's hearts, and they will learn the truth.
