The Truth is Pure and Powerful
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. (Titus 3:9 KJB)
Paul was warning a young man named Titus about getting caught up in zealous questions and arguments concerning the law of God. Nothing good could come of it for God’s law was already established and known. Jesus Christ had already been born, died, and was resurrected on this earth. The law was complete through Calvary. No attempt by man to discover a new avenue or make winning arguments against the law will ever be brought to fruition but could only serve to bolster a prideful heart.
Paul readily understood that God’s law was spiritually cemented firmly in place. Having been fulfilled through Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross at Calvary. Nothing new or different could be accomplished through vain discord and disagreements between men.
