Forbidden Lawsuits

From Series: Firm Foundation, Volume 2

1 Corinthians 6:1-8  (ID: 1628)

Paul admonished believers for filing lawsuits against one another rather than settling matters privately and biblically. Alistair Begg explains that preoccupation with our rights can diminish our sense of responsibility as Christians to exemplify wisdom, righteousness, and brotherly love before the watching world. It is “far better to live as though eternity were a reality and now was just a breath, than to live as if now were a reality and eternity was a myth.”

Lawsuits Against Believers

1When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints?
