The only way of solving problems in this world is through communication. Fighting should be regarded as primitive, as all problems of humanity are solved through communication. In a marital environment, one of the spouses, deciding, either to quit or injure his/her partner, would be having something to hide.
The same applies to a nation whose leader resorts to war against negotiations. The principle of communication was initiated through Jesus. Understandably, not all are Christians, to be expected to appreciate the principle of communication, but Christians are expected to lead the way.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him, nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:1-5 NIV).
It is extremely unnecessary to fantasize about the meaning of the above passage of Scripture, where the term Word is personalized. That term is intended to represent the significance of communication. When removing the personalization of the term “Word,” for “communication,” the structure clarifies the significance.
[In the beginning, was communication and communication was with God, and communication was God. Communication was with God in the beginning. Through Communication all things were made; without communication, nothing was made that has been made. In communication was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it] (John 1:1-5 NIV).
Of the two renditions, which one makes sense? It should not be surprising that others would suggest that the second rendition attempts to mislead people. But no one can dispute the veracity that communication is effective in settling disputable matters. This implies putting reason where there would be unreasonableness.
In simplified terms, communication implies exchanging data or information between entities, in order to solve problems. When applied according to its formula, like lubrication, communication resolves all disputable matters. A mechanical engine cannot function without lubrication.
