How to 'properly' handle issues in the church
How do we 'remedy' divisiveness in the church
One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
If a FALSE WITNESS rise up against any man to testify against him [that which is] wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy [is], shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;
And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, [if] the witness [be] a false witness, [and] hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.
And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you. And thine eye shall not pity; [but] life [shall go] for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot. Deuteronomy 19:15-21
Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. Exodus 23:1
Reconciliation according to Matt Dentino.... never. His heart has been hardened. Jewish law stipulates that you cannot be "at peace" with God if you are not at peace with your fellow man. This again agrees with the following scriptures.
If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a LIAR; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 1 John 4:20
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death. Whosoever hateth his brother is a MURDERER: and ye know that NO MURDERER HATH ETERNAL LIFE ABIDING IN HIM. 1 John 3:14-15
Many of you reading these words today religiously carry out church functions. You say the anthems, pray the prayers, recite the creeds, give your tithes, and thank the minister for his sermons. However, YOU OVERLOOK THE SIN IN YOUR LIFE WHICH WILL DOOM AND DAMN YOUR SOUL IN HELL -- the malicious hatred being harbored toward others. Get right with God. Godly love is the greatest proof one has that his experience is real. -Jack Van Impe, July 2006, www.jvim.com-
And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it: then thou shewedst me their doings. But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered. Jeremiah 11:18-19
I must have been the lamb.
Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. Isaiah 66:5
To all the people who think they can throw people away and be justified, you are wrong! You will have to give an account to God for every scheming deed you devised. If you cannot make peace and get along with Christians on this earth then how do you think that God is going to allow any of you into His heaven? (Matthew 5:22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.Matthew 5 verse 22, Romans 12:18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.Romans 12 verse 18, 1 John 4:20If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?1 John 4 verse 20). The Bible says it cannot happen. Read This is Christianity.
