The Bible verse (Prov 19 vs 13 ) does not relate to the statement on no 18

Be silent when the human race is about to be decimated and dominated forever. The conspiracy of silence and let grace abide and continue as we destroy ourselves and the planet.

Ok.. MOST are right! Some are contradictory. SOME wont work here in Nigeria. i.e 18.
Imagine you are in a bus and the driver is driving recklessly and you warned him ONLY once about his reckless driving but he didnt heed your warning, he tried overtaking and everything went bad but you luckily managed to survive but with lots of physical evidence to tell a tale(lemme out it that way). Trust me! You'll have been sorry for not being persistent on warning him.
In some cases you have to become a talkactive especialky here in nigeria. grin

if I follow every rule or situation listed above, I'd be silent for life, infact I will never utter a word again.
Re: When To Be Silent In 20 Situations by AlfaSeltzer(m): 10:36am On Mar 08
I know the godly wants us to shut up but we won't.

They already confessed in 1 Corinthians 8:11 that hearing our knowledge destroys them.

So let us continue sharing Satanic knowledge and wisdom and drive naked stupidity out of our rock garden.

Be silent if you already said it more than one time

I hear you. But check this.....if you told him twice.... and there is no change... why would you think if you told him a hundred times it would make a difference? Is either you are on ignore... or the driver may be deaf. Be silent on that.... getting him to drive responsibly... find another way... like telling the driver you're getting off.

@ topic...points to note... make a whole lot of sense.

Lol..I am not for the attention. I love and like a lots of honest and reality proven posts here too.. I am also open to corrections. Maybe i will reduce my sensitivity to exceptions. I may be wrong but think about it. A lot of Nigerians here on nairaland often build their mentality to some viral posts with lots of public approval. Unfortunately, some publicly accepted knowledge arent applicable in all situations and some unknowingly can ruin one in so many ways if care is not taken. I've had my experience.
Just trying to help people here nothing ELSE.

Ability to strike a balance between when to talk and when to be silent is massive
