—Greek Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) electioneering or intriguing for office
    1a) apparently, in the NT a courting distinction, a desire to put
        one's self forward, a partisan and fractious spirit which does
        not disdain low arts
    1b) partisanship, fractiousness

 This word is found before NT times only in Aristotle where it denotes
 a self-seeking pursuit of political office by unfair means. (A&G)
 Paul exhorts to be one in the mind of Christ not putting self forward
 or being selfish (Phil 2:3). James 3:14 speaks against having
 selfishness or self-promoting in your heart.  Wayne Steury
