Seek to have no disputes with men, 2 Timothy 2:23

Rijamekee Veii
Whoever would love life and see good days...

New International Version
Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
New Living Translation
Again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights.
English Standard Version
Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.
New American Standard Bible 
But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels.
King James Bible
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

2 Timothy 2:23

That is the one scripture that caused many to stumble. That many think they don't have to obey, the one that is the most compromised perhaps.
Case in point, people could hate you simply cause of some nasty and hugely made up rumor about you. 
People need a reason to hate and have disputes with others I have learned, some literally invent a reason to hate others so they can feel better and more secure.

Psalms 34:14

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it


This is perhaps evils greatest frontier, and the dumbest. Imagine you have ten dolls, all green. You decide you want to make each one unique so you color one purple and add little stickers, then the other red and add rose petals and throw glitter over another. You do that until each little doll you own looks beautiful and unique to you and you have the best toys in the neighborhood.

Imagine these dolls suddenly have life and all the green and red ones decide to hate all the glitter ones cause they don't share the same color. Now all these beautiful and very well decorated dolls you made hate each other and kill each other till your only left with green ones.
I know this is extremely metaphorical but imagine God being the toy maker bragging about the beautiful dolls he made and us being the racist dolls that destroy each other.

Racism is like that, we are all the same and everyone who doesn't understand that probably didn't do very well in biology class.

Wonder if the doll with stripes thought it was special
 compared to the other dolls.

Racism might be one of the biggest dividers we have known in human history, which is a bit stupid since the term human race is a noun, not plural. There can really only exist one race of humans so the term racism is extremely flawed giving you an idea of how 'intelligent' the people who invented racism really were. 

There are many other causes of disputes amongst people that are just as flawed and hilarious. Let's go through some:

Rich folk hating poor folk.

This is hilarious, but it is real and I have seen it so many times. I have seen really rich people isolate themselves from average and poor people. I have no idea why this is so I concluded to thinking that rich people are scared poor people will steal all their money. Either that, or they are scared to look common...and poor so they separate themselves. I have met many rich people that don't separate themselves from poor folks but we need to understand that this is rare and that is largely because of the fact that they don't exist within the same social circles.
Whatever the reason, it's a social phenomenon that has caused disputes among people so it makes my list.

Then we have tall guys and short guys disputes...
Probably the same with girls but most women don't care about height unless they want to model.

Those are a few causes for meaningless quarrels that make you ponder society. None of these arguments amount to anything but seems fewer people pick up on that than we thought.

Basically, if someone argues with you about such dumb things(and it's not in a joking manner), walk away from such people cause foolish disputes only cause strife. From such, stay away and seek peace.

Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.
2 Timothy 2:23
