Soul Snack 187/12 ... Verbal Diarrhoea
To those who delight in their knowledge, who seek the parry of verbal jousting, whose words are many and who love argument; to those who delve into the scriptures and scour learned men for self-promotion - the Lord has this to say:
You quarrel about words to display your knowledge, you speak loudly to display your knowledge, you contradict and you confuse other's imaginings in your proud correctness and in conjuring your spirit's deceits. I have against you knowledge that it is not humble, words that are for your glory and a diet for self-promotion. Yes there is power in words and honor in knowledge, but you only seek My words for your glory - repent for the Kingdom that is Mine is at hand.
Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarrelling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. (2 Tim 2:14)

Theology has become the arbiter of truth when it can't be the guarantor of truth.
