RESOLVING OFFENSE One time, Jesus told His apprentices how to deal with a fellow believer or brother that was offending or sinning against them. First, He recommended going to the person “IN PRIVATE” [Mt 18:15 IC]. If that does not resolve the issue, then take “ONE OR TWO OTHER PEOPLE” [Mt 18:16 IC] with you to confront the person. If that does not work, then present it to the community of believers or church and if the person still does not listen, treat him as “ONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN GOD” [Mt 18:17 IC]. This may be referring to an ongoing offense, as many times Jesus recommends we “FORGIVE” [Mt 6:14] others. Do you forgive others?  Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
