Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned. Titus 3:10 New International Version
Trouble makers get their sick perverted pleasure from causing fights and gleefully watching people get upset. Then they act innocent.
That is pretty warped.
I have some relatives that are experts at this and it took me many years to catch on to them.
Trying to have a meaningful debate with them is useless and an exercise in frustration.
They are deceived.
They think they are so smart that they are getting away with it. Indeed in the short term most of the times they do. It catches up with them when they get older, usually when they are in their late forties to early fifties. Then they end up all alone and every day seems like a prison sentence of painful loneliness and deep grief.
Their very words and actions are what condemns them when they stand before Christ. Woe be unto them for they will receive their reward are described in the Book of Peter’s Apopolips
Prayer: Please Jehovah Adonai (The Lord God sovereign) please teach me the proper way to conduct myself amongst the wolves and open their eyes to their wicked ways unto repentance so they do not suffer damnation in Your righteous judgment.
I meekly request this in the name of He who stood up to the wolves while amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
