Conflict and Abuse:
Sins most ugly face.
I have given them the glory that you gave me,
that they may be one as we are one
A new command I give you:
Love one another.
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.
Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
What a contrast from these powerful statements of what God calls the church to be
and what we sometime descend into. Conflict and abuse happen because we are all
sinner and sinners sin. However, the more we live into the
mission of Jesus the more we can fight this ugliest
face of sin. And when conflict and/or abuse happen, we can bring healing through
repentance and forgiveness given by Jesus. These pages will help you find out how.
