Bible Quotes
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.
(Psalm 133:1-3) ESV

Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?
(Amos 3:3) ESV

That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
(John 17:21) ESV

But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.
(Acts 5:29) ESV

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.
(Romans 16:17) ESV

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
(1 Corinthians 1:10-13) ESV

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.
(2 Corinthians 6:14-18) ESV

Eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
(Ephesians 4:3-6) ESV

So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.
(Ephesians 4:14) ESV

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
(Ephesians 5:11) ESV

If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.
(1 Timothy 6:3-5) ESV

As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him,
(Titus 3:10) ESV

Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
(Hebrews 13:17) ESV

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.
(2 John 1:7-11) ESV1

Division and the Bible

1 Corinthians 6:7 Now, therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated? (NKJV)

Dirty Laundry

"You have to stand up for your rights!" That's what the world, and often even people in the church say, but is it really true, from God's perspective?

Have you ever considered how standing up for your rights—particularly against another Christian, with unbelievers present—impacts your witness? The entire sixth chapter of 1 Corinthians deals with the issue of a believer taking another believer to court. The bottom line is, it just shouldn't be done.

Division in the Church

Unfortunately, much of what the world sees of the church is not good. They see division and strife. They see all manner of disputes, and they don't want to have anything to do with such unloving, uncaring people. Can you blame them?

So then, what should you do if there is a dispute between you and another believer? According to the verse above, you should accept the wrong, and let yourself be cheated. Ouch! That hurts, but it is the course of action that is preferable to taking your brother or sister to court.

Serious Disputes

But what if there really is a serious dispute, that you feel needs to be mediated? 1 Corinthians 6:5 deals with this: ". . . Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren?" This verse instructs us to look to a wise, impartial person in the church, who will judge fairly and help you to settle the matter with another believer, rather than taking the person to court. Matthew 18:15-17 outlines a plan for dealing with offenses in a God-honoring manner.

The bottom line is that the unsaved people in our lives watch how Christians handle disputes. Don't air your dirty laundry in front of them! Instead, work out your differences in the God-ordained manner. That, my friends, will be a powerful witness!2
