“St. Paul warns us that there are “rabbit trails”… “Have nothing to do with stupid, senseless controversies!” Such controversies are raging in our world right now. We would do well to completely avoid them. We can recognize them by their fruit: “They breed quarrels!” One doesn’t have to search these out, they seem to find us. Senseless discussions about things we cannot honestly know, yet we can become vehement about our side. The quarrels will never end. They simply keep us occupied with matters that are not leading us toward “righteousness, faith, love, and peace.””
