Most people often forget that we have one mouth and two ears, which means we should listen twice as much as we speak. That way we will be able to connect with others on a spiritual level, not being driven by our egoistic instincts which make us speak without listening.

I disagree, nowadays so many people listen to other people and what it does is it changes there own perception of situations so let's say your friend says If someone wants to be mean to you, you should fight back. then in a situation of disrespect and disregard for others instead of doing what the person would usually do, they would want to connect with their friend so they fight back.

Whoever started this debate he/she might not have realized that what he/she proposed because relatively what she proposes happens to have people encourage to smoke Here is why:

Let's say your friend smokes and she tells you to smoke. if you do things the way my opponent thinks then that means you would smoke.
And all of this could have been avoided if those hypothetical people didn't listen.

Completely wrong .... people already believe anything everybody else says. Because of this alone, there are Christians who are wrong in their beliefs, for lack of self study, and a greater number that are almost completely Biblically illiterate which makes them believe the most ridiculous notions about God.

That they DO NOT KNOW God, places them sqyarely in 1 Corinthians 3:15
13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person"s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved"even though only as one escaping through the flames.

All that is required is to READ scripture to KNOW if your wrong or not ... yet the vast majority of the religious follow a belief stemming from complete emotionalism, and virtually zero scriptural backing. In the end they like those consigned to Hell itself, will be without excuse, as all has been made plain to them ... not only in Gods Word, but in the World by demonstration! Sad really!

It is true that you cannot help anyone who demonstrates NO desire to learn!
