I tend to see fruitless debate as two sides that want to be heard but refuse to listen, rooted around persuasion. Man can justify and rationalize anything within his own mind.

 

Tit.3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

 

I suggest we not entertain fruitless debates but rather study to show ourselves approved!

2 Jn.1:10-11 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

(Don't enable or support such/ guilt by association)

2 Tim.2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
2 Tim.2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

Prov.17:14 The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with. ("contention"- reeb- a contest (personal or legal): - + adversary, cause, chiding, contend (-tion), controversy, multitude [from the margin], pleading, strife, strive (-ing), suit.)

/1 Tim.6:4/ Jas.3:14-16/ Gal.5:19-21/ 1 Cor.3:3/ 2 Cor.12:19-20/ Prov.26:20/

Phi.2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves ("vainglory" - kenodoxia- empty glorying, that is, self conceit: - vain-glory.)

(suggested blogs- Spiritual discernment, showing Love, Rebuke)

Col.4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

We are also warned against overloading others when it comes to ministry Lk.6:29.

 

* Remember fishers of men look for interest. The sinners Christ had company with were interested in The WORD. We are Not called to fellowship with nor entertain those who mock God's WORD, so often times seperation is an option before rebuke (thus we are given the gift of spiritual discernment).

One sent of God (instruments of The Judge /Elohim) is concerned for all, and they give gorly to YHVH. You can sow a seed as an instrument of God but God gives the increase. Judgement is according to The LORD and his will. We are not called to judge by our own accord as to say one is hopeless of salvation (Matt.5:22), our job is the opposite. Spiritual Isreal is called to bring forth God's WORD to the nations and to serve as an example of how to have a relationship with The LORD. (Today this calls for us to stress the importance of Repentance and embraceing a ongoing relationship with The LORD according to his will- By Grace through Faith)

 

Jn.6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Acts 17:17  Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

Man Can justify anything within his own mind (Prov.1:7; 3:1,5,7; 18:2,12/ Luke 10:25-37Rom. 11:25John 8:47Col. 2:23/ Jas.1:22/ ....) Pro.18:2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, But that his heart may discover itself.

Pro.3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding Rom.11:25a For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceitsCol.2:23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh Gal.5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Pro.14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Pro.1:7 The fear of the Lordis the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.....Rom.10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

Psa 1:1  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

(scornful- loots-A primitive root; properly to make mouths at, that is, to scoff; hence (from the effort to pronounce a foreign language) to interpret, or (generally) intercede: - ambassador, have in derision, interpreter, make a mock, mocker, scorn (-er, -ful), teacher.)

Titus 2

11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Titus 3

1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

 3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

 4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

 5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

 8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

 9But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

 10A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

 11Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
