Second Timothy 2:22-26 (ESV) --

So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

comment What does “to pray” mean in Catholicism?
Hi Anonymous. Do you happen to have a reference for that definition of "worship?" I think it might be contra Roman Catholic orthodoxy -- not that I'm an expert on the subject, because I'm not. Also, FWIW, the KJV usually renders G1391 as "glory," but in at least one verse (Lk 14:10) it is translated as "worship" to describe behavior directed at other people, rather than toward God, in what is apparently a positive tone. Thanks.

@GediminasJeremiahGudelis: There's a Christianity.SE question for that: "Why are Christian books not public domain?"

Also, John Piper provides a great -- and very direct -- answer to that question in this five minute YouTube video.

comment Is hypocrisy a sin?
Eh? Actually, the Bible is very clear about requiring believers to point out sin in one anothers' lives. Can I ask what source you're using for that definition of "hypocrisy?" Here are a few others that might be helpful: 1, 2, 3,4, 5.

comment Is song a critical component of worship or something that we've just borrowed from example?
@CCruz: I didn't mean to suggest that it did. I'm still new enough here that I'm learning the site's guidelines as well -- one of which is apparently to not be too "chatty" in comments, actually, so I'll cut this short. Hang in there, there actually seems to be a very well-thought-out "method to the madness." Reading the meta posts can be really helpful.

I've seen an interesting quote that's been attributed to Luther -- something to the effect that anyone who didn't like using music in worship was just plain evil (Luther tended to be very outspoken about his opinions). Apparently he also thought that the use of pipe organs in church was comparable to Baal worship, though I can't source the quote.
