I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

Avoiding Profane And Vain Babblings

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Is it right for one church to talk about another church? It would seem that this goes directly against the teaching of the Word. We are not to boast, backbite, or gossip. Should not the Word of God being taught, in its fullness, be sufficient. Gods' Word will show us the truth. There is no good to come from doing these things. God will take care of His churches, they that speak the truth. There is enough work to be done in ones own church without the worry of what another is doing. In ones own church Paul tells us here in Titus 3:9: "But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
10: A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
11: Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself. "

Mathew 15:10-11
10: And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

1 Corinthians 3:18-20
18: Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19: For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
20: And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

2 corinthians 10:17-18
17: But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
18: For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.

1 Timothy 6:19-21
19: Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
20: O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
21: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.

2 Timothy 2:3-4
3: Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4: No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

2 Timothy 2:23-26
23: But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24: And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25: In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26: And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Hebrews 12:12-14
12: Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
13: And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
14: Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

2 Peter 2:23-26
23: But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24: And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25: In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26: And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
