1 Corinthians 6:1-2
“Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?”
Disputes will always arise between people and the Bible has provided mechanisms in the scriptures for us to settle our differences.
I had a friend who had a dispute with her husband. She wanted to use strict legal laws to determine the case. I advised her to use the principles of the word because you can be legally right and biblically wrong. God is the ultimate judge and he can pass judgment on you irrespective of what a human court says. What are some of these divine mechanisms?
First of all, both parties must be Christians and committed to this process if it is to succeed.
Secondly, a panel of matured spiritual Christians should be empowered to adjudicate in this case.
The word of God should be used to determine this case. God will judge the world based on his word. Paul said; “But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things” Romans 2:2.
Do you have a dispute with a fellow Christian? Try the courtroom of heaven first and if it fails then you can resort to a human court.
