As dangerous as those moral pitfalls may be, Paul’s letters to Pastor Timothy draw our attention toward another. It’s a pit without the public shame of more popular sins, but one just as deep and dangerous. It’s the pitfall of becoming pointless, the trap of the tautological, the moral failure of foolishness.
