1 We are not rashly or arrogantly to reprooue others: 5 but rather to bridle the tongue, a little member, but a powerfull instrument of much good, and great harme. 13 They who be truely wise, be milde, and peaceable, without enuying, and strife. — AV1611, James 3 chapter summary
[13] Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

[14] But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

[15] This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

[16] For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

[17] But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

[18] And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

— KJV, James 3:13-18


We see here that the bible clearly states that true wisdom, which by the way is obtained by fearing the LORD, descends from above and is not about proving yourself among brethren or in a public building but rather is found in the milde peacable who are without envy and strife.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. — KJV, Proverbs 9:10

So the truly wise are mild, peacable and without envy and strife.

Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. — KJV, Proverbs 17:1

So better leave the place if it is full of strife.

He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction. — KJV, Proverbs 17:19

If the house is full of strife it is probably full of people who love transgression.

He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat. — KJV, Proverbs 28:25

So its probably people of a proud heart that cause the strife. And those with a proud heart are not saved. They have a king over them called the Antichrist.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. — KJV, Psalms 1:1

So dont stand in their way.
