The argumentative defense of any proposition is inversely proportional to the truth contained.  Overpowering arguments and mental superiority are not to be employed to coerce men and women into the kingdom. 
Jesus said: “Do not strive with men—always be patient. Do not strive with men, even with unbelievers”.  Jesus seemed to be utterly free from all egoistic desire to win an argument merely to experience logical triumph over his fellows.  His unfriendly hearers sought to engage Jesus in unprofitable argumentation, but he refused to debate with his enemies.
