Have you ever met a person who just wanted to argue with you? This world seems full of people who just want to argue, fight, or debate. I have found it to be true that “no one changes their mind after losing a debate.”

It is important to stand for the truth, but it is almost useless arguing or debating over the truth. Arguing or debating is very seldom successful. No, people will not be changed because we beat them in an argument. People are changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
