Titus3:9 But avoid foolish controversies,genealogies and quarrels about bathe law for they are unprofitable and worthless.
Debate-Discussion or argument . In some cases debating can be a good thing as long as it stays a discussion. But, when it becomes something beyond a discussing a particular topic it becomes unprofitable to both parties. The reason why it becomes unprofitable is because neither party is really listening to the other. It also really doesn’t solve the issue that’s on the table either. I don’t mind discussing another religion but don’t start off by telling me my religion is wrong and trying to prove yours in correct. Once you do that you become unprofitable.Besides when we debate we show our true intentions. .
