Having a doctrine pass before the mind is not what the Bible means by knowing the truth. It’s only when it reaches down deep into the heart that the truth begins to set us free, just as a key must penetrate a lock to turn it, or as rainfall must saturate the earth down to the roots in order for your garden to grow.
Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.
2 Timothy 2:16
The New International Version
