Proverbs 26

4 Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools,
or you will become as foolish as they are.

5 Be sure to answer the foolish arguments of fools,
or they will become wise in their own estimation.

    Had to think of Kosh on 4……..

    • Euan Rt

      Was thinking the same. I think these two should be reversed. It is right to correct a fool, but not to continue arguing with them if they will not see the error of their way.

    • Johnbronkhorst

      describing Kosh as a fool, is overstating his qualifications……..by a substantial margin.

      • Dave

        Apologies John, i stand corrected.   Perhaps i was looking at Kosh as “teachers Pet” instead of class fool.

      • Tony

        I don’t think that Kosh is a fool. He just has a different agenda to those who would like to see a prosperous NZ. He would like to see NZ fall into decay so that he and his mates can take over. “Don’t waste a crisis………..”
