But avoid stupid and uneducated disputes, knowing that they produce quarrels, for it is not fitting for a servant of the Lord to quarrel but to be kind toward all, able to teach, tolerant, correcting opponents with gentleness, whether perhaps God might give to them repentance at knowledge of the truth and they might come to their senses out of the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him for his will. (2 Tim 2:23-26)
