Peacemaking is something of a lost art. People typically have two responses.
Either they attack and spit ad hominem fallacies all over your face. (Hey, they’re desperate to get their argument out there, pardon them if it involves spittle) <— ad hominem ;-P
Or you have those who just escape and allow the bitterness to build up. I honestly see the escaping and letting the bitterness wall build as being worse. Anyways, we can conclude both are bad.
But what do we do? We have to make peace. Of course there are times when it is impossible. There are people who will just hate you no matter what you do. Anyways.. As Christians, peacemaking is very important. Does that mean we have to agree on everything? No. But civility and love for one another is.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” ~ Matthew 5:9
