DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH FOOLISH AND STUPID ARGUMENTS
 
2 TIMOTHY 2:23 Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
 
PULPIT COMMENTARY Stupid is a term applied properly to ill-disciplined people, and thence, to the questions such persons delight in.
 
VINCENT'S WORD STUDIES questions of an untrained mind, carried away with novelties:
 
DEFINITION of NOVELTIES unusual and entertaining that is popular for a short period of time.
 
ROMANS 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.
 
BARNES' NOTES Thus, here it may mean that Christians should not conform to the maxims, habits, feelings, etc., of a wicked, luxurious, and idolatrous age, but should be conformed solely to the precepts and laws of the gospel; or the same principle may be extended to every age, and the direction may be, that Christians should not conform to the prevailing habits, style, and manners of the world, the people who know not God. They are to be governed by the laws of the Bible; to fashion their lives after the example of Christ; and to form themselves by principles different from those which prevail in the world. In the application of this rule there is much difficulty. Many may think that they are not conformed to the world, while they can easily perceive that their neighbor is. They indulge in many things which others may think to be conformity to the world, and are opposed to many things which others think innocent. The design of this passage is doubtless to produce a spirit that should not find pleasure in the pomp and vanity of the World; and which will regard all vain amusements and gaieties with disgust, and lead the mind to find pleasure in better things.
