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

At best, last wordism is childish. At worst, it reflects a lack of restraint, a characteristic of wrongdoing or sin.

God has the real last word, as when men demanded that Jesus be crucified and Pontius Pilate ordered that Jesus be crucified, to which God responded with the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
