Is there ever a good time to stir said pot? If yes, explain. If no, explain. Either way you've got a lot of explaining to do. ;)

If you dont stir the pot once in a while ... it'll stick to the bottom. :p

There is a time to stir the metaphorical pot... but this is Singles, and I don't want to stir this pot.

Is Duchess Aimee back, like for real?

Right now I would say it's good to stir things up when people are in danger of getting away with lazy thinking and / or group think and need to be challenged to consider other perspectives. I don't think it's a Christian perspective to enjoy seriously stirring up conflict and strife just for your own entertainment (no matter how entertaining people's reactions are), but sometimes it sure is tempting.

In a few months my opinion may change, but I'm quite sure I'll be right both times. :p

Best time to stir the pot is when you are watching trash tv.

You can stir the pot to see what's in it. Sometimes you find out some things you didn't know.

You can stir the pot so somebody else can see what's in it, if you think there are things people need to know. Instigating and agitating can reveal things, and it's much more effective than just telling them. If they see it for themselves they'll believe it.

Or you can stir the pot just for fun, because you want to get stuff floating around. That's the worst reason, but the most common one.

Whenever I stir my spaghetti sauce pot I better know what’s all inside or I wonder who had tampered with it 🤔

Uh... yeah, well... it obviously needed some help. A few peppers never hurt spaghetti sauce.

I don't think its wrong to stir the pot, especially after what it said to the kettle. Racist!

Motives!
If you are an antagonist you can be either good or bad. Motive!
Every post shows SOME truths of who you are and what's really in your heart.
Love should be our motive when engaging with saints or sinners in any capacity.
God's word is truth,and He cannot lie for He is infallible.
Man on the other hand is full of fallacies whether from self interpetation,erroneous doctrine,theology or following man instead of God!
Some NEED TO BE SHAKEN AND STIRRED to promote growth!
