“But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless! As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.”
The title is more of a tongue-in-cheek joke than anything else. But, the conversation and demeanor on many blogs (both by authors and those commenting) seems to deny that this instruction was ever given.
Lord, keep me pure. Help me to only teach, preach, and write about that which is essential. May this blog never be given to foolish controversies nor may we ever engage in needless quarrels and dissension. May Christ alone be our only boast.
