People seem to love debating. They love to debate about politics, religion, personal opinions, various convictions, and current events.
We should not be surprised; it seems to have been around for centuries of time. Socrates said, “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”
When pride grows, we no longer debate, but seek ways to slander our opponent in order to win.
Spiritual leaders lose credibility when they willingly attack and slander someone instead of presenting truth in love.
We tend to think we have a responsibility to expose others for their beliefs, when in reality we need to speak the truth of God’s word.
