Legal Matters

Disputes between members of the body of Christ should be settled outside court (I Cor. 6:1-8), in a peaceful matter for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace (I Cor. 14:33). However, the bible also says that the law is for the lawless! (I Tim. 1:9). If you are really my brother, you will not STEAL from me (Ex. 20:15), nor COVET what belongs to me (Ex. 20:17), or LIE on me (slander) (Ex. 20:16), or KILL me (physically or with your mouth), nor cause my character to be marred (Ex. 20:13). Col 3:8 says to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. "Let NO corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers" (Eph. 4:29).
