1. How does the Bible say to resolve
conflict between two people?
1 Corinthians 1:10
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all
speak the same thing, and that there be
no divisions among you; but that ye be
perfectly joined together in the same
mind and in the same judgment.
2. Galatians 6:10
10 As we have therefore opportunity,
let us do good unto all men,
especially unto them who are of the
household of faith.
Natural personality conflicts are normal
because we form our reasoning abilities from
the sum total of each of our own life
experiences. As a member of the family of
God we need to know how to resolve
disagreements and conflicts between family
3. Many times God will bring to your
mind something you have to do before
he can bless you.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar,
and there rememberest that thy brother hath
ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go
thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and
then come and offer thy gift.
4. If you know someone has a problem with you
(regardless of who is at fault) it must be
resolved first before your service to God can
be accepted as coming from a pure heart.
5. Pure Heart
1 Timothy 1:5
Now the end of the commandment is charity
out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience,
and of faith unfeigned:
6. Pure Heart
Let us draw near with a true heart in full
assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled
from an evil conscience, and our bodies
washed with pure water.
7. Pure Heart
1 Peter 1:22
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying
the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned
love of the brethren, see that ye love one
another with a pure heart fervently:
8. The passage in Matthew talks
about your brother having a
problem with you. However, the
same applies when you are the
one who has a problem with
9. Galatians 6:1
Brethren, if a man be overtaken
in a fault, ye which are
spiritual, restore such an one
in the spirit of meekness;
considering thyself, lest thou
also be tempted.
10. Jesus explains how to resolve a problem
with another Christian in detail.
15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and
tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall
hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two
more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every
word may be established.
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church:
but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as
an heathen man and a publican.
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth
shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven.
11. 1. Go talk to that person one on one. If that
2. Take one or two witnesses. If that doesn’t
3. Take it before the Church body. If that
4. Separate fellowship with this person.
12. Jesus ends this instruction with:
Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth
shall be bound in heaven: and
whatsoever ye shall loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven.
13. Judgment Seat of Christ.
This means if you can resolve
an issue here on earth you will
not have to face it at the
Judgment Seat of Christ.
14. The reason this is so important:
18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will
not hear me:
105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light
unto my path.
God will give us light to take the next step in our
15. The reason this is so important:
In order to grow spiritually we have
to obey what we know to do.
God will not give us new light
until we have used what he has
already given us.
16. The reason this is so important:
15 Looking diligently lest any man
fail of the grace of God; lest any
root of bitterness springing up

17. The reason this is so important:
