Regarding Controversy Among Christians

To draw those who are engaged in one cause into contest about words and phrases is an old device of the enemy. And I have met with an expression, which though not very delicately expressed, stands in my mind as a maxim, confirmed by the experience of ages, Pruritus disputandi scabies ecclesiae.*

Wise Counsel, p. 258.

I’ll give you Latin speakers a chance to work this one out.

*An itch for disputing is the infection of the church.
