THE RESULT OF DISPUTING ABOUT WORDS.
"If any man teaches other doctrine and does not assent to healthful words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, nor to the teaching that accords with Godly devotion, he is puffed up with pride, not understanding anything, but being mentally diseased over questionings and debates about words. From these things spring envy, strife (quarrelling), abusive speeches (slander), wicked suspicions, violent disputes about trifles on the part of men corrupted in mind and despoiled of the truth…" (1 Tim 6:3-5 NWT & NEB).
