In the culture we live in today it seems as though we are all facing conflicts and disagreements. Every believer is created in a unique way to bring God glory. Since each believer is different we are going to have differences in opinion. These differences of opinion can lead to conflicts and disagreements. Conflicts and disagreements are not necessarily bad unless they lead to sin. The Bible is the foundation in Christian living and contains all we need to live a righteous life. The Bible does not shy away from talking about conflicts. Paul and Barnabas had a heated disagreement which shows us that there will be times when Christians face disagreements. In our continued study of conflict resolution God’s way, we will discuss conflicts that arise from indifference's. This type of conflict arises when there is a difference of opinion or a different preference. There are practical Biblical practices we can apply to our lives in order to find resolutions to our conflicts. The foundation of resolution is humility. When we face conflict with our fellow brother or sister in Christ, we need to understand that we both worship the same God and that we are united in Christ. As believers, we need to live in compassion with one another.
Pastor Jeff and Dr. Hines revisit the discussion on three main types of conflict in the conflict resolution series. These main types of conflicts are: conflicts that result from differences, conflicts that result from sinfulness, and conflicts that result from righteousness issues. Check out episode 27 to study practical biblical solutions to three main types of conflicts!
