Fool
« on: May 03, 2006, 09:38:06 AM »

Hi, Ray!
I just wanted some understanding about 2 back-to-back verses

Answer a fool according to his folly and

Do NOT answer a fool according to his folly.

What would be a clearer translation? i'm sure this isn't a
contradiction.....


Dear Eric:

The translations are fine. Both statements are true. Sometimes we do one and sometimes we do the other depending on the situation. I have showed numerous times on my site that Jesus did both in His dealings with the Church leaders. Likewise, sometimes I will answer a fool according to his folly, and on other times I will not. Both are very effective ways of communication.

God be with you,

Ray
