Useless Wranglings of Men

“If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.” – 1 Tim. 6:3-5

I love that turn of phrase: useless wranglings of men. Paul doesn’t pull any punches, does he?

It means: meddlesomeness, perverse disputings, constant arguing, and pointless debate.

Corrupt minds who have NO TRUTH engage in this.

Paul, says: stay away from folks like that.
