Last wordism is the belief that victory can be obtained in a debate or discussion by having the "last word." Some argue that last wordism is often a characteristic of "less intellectually robust presentations."[1]

Last wordism reflects a lack of restraint, a characteristic of wrongdoing or sin. The ultimate in last wordism was men asking for Jesus to be crucified and Pontius Pilate stating that Jesus was to be crucified, to which God responded with the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
