'Contentiousness' in the Bible

Some indeed actually preach Christ out of envy and contentiousness but there are also others who do it from good will.

Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].
