Why Unhealthy People Crave Controversy

“To be sure, controversies happen in every era since people will have differing views on important issues, and sometimes even disagreements about how important those issues are. But Scripture speaks repeatedly about those who have what the apostle Paul calls “an unhealthy craving for controversy” (1 Tim. 6:4). Of course, Paul was more than willing to speak into controversies himself—from opposing Peter to his face for refusing to eat with Gentiles to some of those fiery letters to the Corinthians. But this was as different from craving controversy for the sake of controversy as conjugal love is from an orgy.”

From time to time, we will post from other blogs. Here at The Gospel Coalition, Russell Moore posts a helpful article: Why Unhealthy People Crave Controversy.
