A War of Words

“A perverse man spreads strife, and a slanderer separates intimate friends.” (Pr 16:28)

There is something wrong with a person that loves an argument.  It’s perverse to enjoy seeing relationships destroyed and friendships shattered.  Words may not shed blood like guns do, but a slanderer can cut a heart just as deep as a bullet can tear flesh.

People should view arguments like we view war.  Only when principles and virtue require it, but never before.  Far too often, we find a disturbing joy in watching arguments and drama unfold amongst others.  We ought rather to weep over such things.  Nothing more wasteful than seeing good people separated by hate.

“If it be possible, as much as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.” (Romans 12:18)
