What if I have a dispute with a fellow Christian and the church won’t do anything about it?

 

I’m going to apologize to you on behalf of the church even though it’s not my place to do that. The church does have a responsibility according to the Bible God wrote to resolve our disputes, but unfortunately often times, they’re not equipped to deal with it. More often than not, they just don’t deal with it. I apologize to you because the Bible is clear that you need to be taking it to them. The other option for you then is to simply find a Christian conciliator or some other believer who is equipped to resolve the dispute following Biblical principles because God still wants us to not to go to the courts, but to go to a fellow believer so that we can apply the principles that He’s asked us to apply in reconciling the relationships and settling our disputes.
