To teach or not to teach

ואמר רבי אילעא משום ר’ אלעזר בר’ שמעון
כשם שמצוה על אדם לומר דבר הנשמע
כך מצוה על אדם שלא לומר דבר שאינו נשמע
:יבמות סה

Torah is supposed to get us closer to Hashem. If a person is not ready to accept something, teaching it to him will only drive him away. Therefore, it is better not to tell it to him then.
