Disagreements and the Bible How To Settle Any Disagreement Between Two Christians First Rule: Don’t be quick to quarrel. If you are, you’re a fool. If you’re a fool, don’t expect to get wisdom. Even if it’s pounded into you, you probably still won’t get it. Proverbs 20:3 “It is a man’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.” Proverbs 23:9 “Do not speak to a fool, for he will scorn the wisdom of your words.” Proverbs 27:22 “Though you grind a fool in a mortar, grinding him like grain with a pestle, you will not remove his folly from him.” Titus 3:9-11 “But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, but these are unprofitable and useless. Warn a divisive person once, then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; his is self-condemned.” Second Rule: If you have to contend on a point, do it in love for mutual edification. If you do it to build yourself up, you’re a fool. Romans 14:19 “Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.” I Thess. 5:11 “Therefore encourage each other and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” Third Rule: Only Truth can be trusted. It is rare and pure and only comes from God. Any man-made thing will burn off in the fire. Focus on the eternal. See the big picture. Romans 1:25 “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator — who is forever praised. Amen.” I Corin. 13:9-11 “For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”
