Returning violence for violence creates more violence. When we are engaged in a Bible study with someone and they are rude or ugly to us, the way to combat that is NOT to return the insults.
This type of eye for an eye mentality only serves to hurt your case. Those that are attracted to that “style” (which isn’t a legitimate style endorsed by Jesus) are those who participate in the same sort of vicious, senseless attacks.
Name calling, poisoning the well, and other forms of vitriol have no place in any discussion, especially in discussion concerning the infinite loving Savior.
Being nasty isn’t a style; it just invalidates any truth you may accidentally spew during the attacks.
