Dealing With Disagreements Without Being Disagreeable
Paul has some practical advice for dealing with disagreements between members of the Body of Christ EPHESIANS 4:2,15,23-26
• Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance
for each other’s faults because of your love. [For more, go to MAKING ALLOWANCES.]
• Speak the truth in love, growing more and more like Christ, who is the head of
his Body, the Church.
• Let the Holy Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.
Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.
• Stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbours the truth.
Challenging The Sin Without Condemning The Sinner JOHN 8:2-11
A marvelous example of the way Jesus confronted sin but did not condemn the sinner is to be seen in the way he dealt with a young woman caught in the very act of adultery.
Compassion Without Compromise
Jesus shows the woman God's compassion without compromising God's standards of holiness.
