2 Timothy 2:16
But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase to more ungodliness.
I. PROFANE VAIN BABBLINGS ARE TO BE AVOIDED. How often does our apostle condemn them? Why are they to be avoided?
1. Because the branches which bear them are evil; as weakness of judgment, frowardness of will, and disorder in the affections.
2. And do they not blemish our reputation? obscure the gloss of grace? hinder the acts of it? kindle corruption? and turn from the faith?
II. THE CAUSES WHICH INCREASE SIN ARE TO BE REMOVED.
(J. Barlow, D. D.)
