Today's Office of Readings and the Debate

This morning, a priest friend, Fr. Meyer, called me and asked "Have you read the Office of Readings yet?"  I told him no, and he told me that when I did, I would be surprised given the debate last night.  About an hour later, I got to it, and here is the passage:

"Anyone who teaches anything different, and does not keep to the sound teaching which is that of our Lord Jesus Christ, the doctrine which is in accordance with true religion, is simply ignorant and must be full of self-conceit – with a craze for questioning everything and arguing about words. All that can come of this is jealousy, contention, abuse and wicked mistrust of one another; and unending disputes by people who are neither rational nor informed and imagine that religion is a way of making a profit." 1 Timothy 6: 3-5
