Bible Quotes

If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.
(Proverbs 18:13) ESV 

A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.
(Proverbs 29:11) ESV 

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
(Matthew 18:15-17) ESV 

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
(Romans 12:19) ESV 

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
(Romans 12:21) ESV 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
(2 Corinthians 5:17) ESV 

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
(2 Corinthians 6:14) ESV 

Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.
(Galatians 6:1) ESV 

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.
(Ephesians 4:26,27) ESV 

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
(Ephesians 4:29) ESV 

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
(Ephesians 4:31,32) ESV 

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
(Philippians 2:3,4) ESV 

Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
(2 Timothy 4:2) ESV

Confrontation and the Bible

The Bible says that the tongue is full of deadly poison.  The tongue is like a sword.  It can cut and slice apart its victims.  Proverbs 21:23 states, "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles."  

We sometimes having to confront others over matters of conduct or conflict.  We are to speak truth with our mouths and as the saying goes, "Sometimes the truth hurts."  Proverbs 27:5-6

But there is a right way and a wrong way to confront a person and handle conflict.  First, establish that there truly is a need for confrontation. Galatians 6:1 states, "…if a man be overtaken in a fault…"  This gives the idea that there is no doubt about the situation.  Galatians 6:1 is not a license to be a busybody.  We should not be eagerly looking for opportunities to point out problems or failures in others.

When confrontation is necessary, the first thing we should do is examine our own heart and see if our heart is right with God.  Paul said, "…ye which are spiritual…"  This means that we are controlled by God's Holy Spirit and not by the old flesh.

When involved in a conflict, ask yourself, “Have I uttered hasty words (Proverbs 29:20), negative words (Philippians 2:14), lying words (Ephesians 4:25), gossiping words (Proverbs 11:13, 17:9)?”

Sinful tongues contribute greatly to conflict.  Apply the Ephesians 4:29 test to your tongue.

When the time comes for you to confront this person, you must speak the truth, but do it in love.  Ephesians 4:15

Speaking the truth means that you may have to say some things that the other person may not want to hear, but you do it with a broken heart of love and grace.

Fourth, remember the goal - restoration. When you are involved in a conflict, the goal is not to humiliate the other person or be declared the "winner."  Paul said the goal is to "…restore such an one…"

Your goal is to see that person restored back to fellowship with God (if it is a sin issue in their life) or with you (if the issue is conflict between you and the person).

Some people have a contentious spirit and do not want peace.  Or some people will agree with you to your face and make no change whatsoever. At this point, you cannot get bitter and angry.  You must leave it with the Lord.  Romans 12:18 states, "If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men."

There are examples of men in Scripture that Paul could not live at peace with and there may very possibly be people like this in your life.  1 Timothy 1:202 Timothy 4:14-155
