Biblical Reasons to Stop Arguing

Arguing is entertaining to many. I’m the kind of guy who starts an argument but then gets very tired of it soon after and sort of drifts off.

This is pretty rude of me, but I don’t have the attention span to win an argument. At a certain point arguments all strike me the same and I hit a point where I think “who cares?”

The Bible throws some needed light on the subject. Here are the top reasons for not arguing with Bible references:

1) It’s not my job or responsibility to convince you of anything, God does that. Philippians 3:15, “if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.”

2)  I’m not supposed to care how dumb you are. 1 Corinthians 14:38, “But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”

3) It causes listeners to stumble. 2 Timothy 2:14, “charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.”

4) If you’re really that wrong, I’m not supposed to get you to talk more, I’m supposed to shut you up. Titus 1:11, “Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not.”

5) I’m supposed to avoid arguments as they are pointless. Titus 3:9, “But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.”

6) Life speaks louder than words, if you’re living right people won’t argue with you, if you’re always arguing, well, draw your own conclusion. 1 Peter 2:15, “For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.”

7) God is in control, don’t act so desperate. Revelation 22:11, “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”

So, there ya go. Arguing is for heathens. Deal with it.
