Understand what you affirm

Paul told Timothy that the purpose of a command from the Lord was that we might love from a pure heart, a good conscience, and sincere faith, yet,

“some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm” (1 Timothy 1:6-7).

If we stray from loving in the way the Lord directs, then when we speak on biblical matters, we will reveal our lack of understanding in those matters.

Therefore, seek love that you might understand what you affirm, otherwise, you may find yourself affirming error.
