Pearls Before Swine
For some, "Christianity" is merely a vain debate, a lust for control of others that must be "won" at all costs. They will smugly argue and bluster, not as a matter of honest debate in which everyone learns and benefits from the knowledge and thoughts of others (see Disciples of Christ), but as a stonewall rebuke and denial of almost everything that their "opponent" has to say. The Messiah instructed His people to not waste precious time and energy on such arrogant troublemakers - who are either as-yet uncalled to understanding, or who are defiantly violating Christ's instructions about humbly Growing In The Grace And Knowledge.
"7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." (Matthew 7:6 KJV)
"Neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you"
Jesus Christ, our only Lord and Master, was a teacher, a presenter of facts. The Son of God didn't wallow in verbal strife (see the Fact Finder question below) with those who "knew better" than Him - nor do those who humbly preach those same teachings, Christ's teachings, rather than their own vain, self-serving religious philosophy that compels them to lord it over the minds of others in order to be "right." Such pompous and egotistical behavior isn't Christian - it's the mark of a Satanic loser.
"2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
