1 Timothy 6:20-21 (NET) O Timothy, protect what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the profane chatter and absurdities of so-called “knowledge.” By professing it, some have strayed from the faith. Grace be with you all.
Ikenna joined a Facebook group where all they did was to try to poke holes in the Bible and argue over useless and vain topics bothering on spirituality, spiritism, the divinity of Jesus, and the likes. He noticed that the group was filled with godless people who had no respect or regard for the Lord God. After reading some of the posts on that group for some time, even though he brought potent arguments against their flagrant attacks on the faith, he observed that his faith at some point started to waver because of some of the arguments and assertions brought up by certain godless and blasphemous members of the group. He decided to leave the group. He observed that after leaving, his faith started to grow again. He no longer felt suffocated spiritually.
As believers today, we need to realize that there are those whose mission from the devil is to deceive God’s people and cause them to stray away from the faith through high falutin arguments that sway people who do not have a sound understanding of scriptures and the power of God. Apart from the words of what these people spread, there are evil spirits of unbelief and profanity that they spread through their materials and arguments.
As a believer in Christ who is purpose-driven, it is important that you be particular about avoiding profane chatter and absurdities of so-called ‘knowledge’.
We are to guard our hearts with all diligence because out of it proceeds the issues of life(see Proverbs 4:23). Materials we read, watch, or listen to get into our hearts. We have to be careful not to allow materials that defile our hearts and engender unbelief. Many believers have found themselves spiritually weak and unable to walk in God’s power because of this.
Go into today remembering to be [sober and] vigilant. Watch and pray. Don’t let your heart be inundated with materials that seek to undermine your faith.
Prayer: Lord, help me guard my heart with all diligence. Give me the wisdom to discern materials designed to flood my heart with profanity.
