"But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness." (2 Timothy 2:16)
Keep talking, bro. Pretty soon nothing will be unholy. Everything will be sacred. No desire will be refused. Keep on babbling. Let the words twist and turn. Create arguments. Make it more complex than it has to be. If you keep at it, you'll hack down the whole tree. Soon, you'll be left with a stump of a belief system which will cohabitate nicely with your world's.
Like chopping down a tree, "irreverent babble" chops away at the word of God until unholiness becomes a myth. Paul said, "it will lead people into more and more ungodliness." More and more. As in, increasing. The ungodliness gets bigger with the Youtube uploads. God is not feared, so the writer writes, the speaker speaks, and waywardness is on the rise!
You can twist and turn your way into folly. Paul knew this. So he said, "avoid irreverent babble." The problem, though, is that many unknowingly engage in it. They talk and talk without any real knowledge that they have an absolute void of the fear of the Lord. Their primary concern is the self, not the Lord, not his view or opinion. This godless babble, lacking respect for God, must be avoided.
Our first prayer, as believers, is for the hallowing of God's name (Matthew 6:9). More than anything else, we want to see God revered, respected, honored, and loved. Not a sentimental love, nor a merely spoken one, but a real and honest respect for God which leads to reordered lives and philosophies. But when the pontificator pontificates and demeans God and his word, or twists and twists it to their own destruction, buyer beware!
Avoid. Know when to turn it off. Research, yes. Engage, yes. Build your immunity and defenses, yes. But sometimes you gotta get out. Sometimes you gotta tune out, stop listening to them yelling at you about your Christianity, and get out. That irreverent babble is going somewhere. It's taking people places. It's not for nothing. And it must be avoided.
