1. When it comes to matters such as these, we must look to Scripture as our final authority. An excerpt from Paul’s writing on the subject proves that this issue is very important. Looking at 1 Corinthians 6:1-7 Paul says; “When one of you has a dispute with another believer, how dare you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter instead of taking it to other believers! Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves?… 4 If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to outside judges who are not respected by the church? 5 I am saying this to shame you. Isn’t there anyone in all the church who is wise enough to decide these issues? 6 But instead, one believer sues another—right in front of unbelievers! 7 Even to have such lawsuits with one another is a defeat for you. Why not just accept the injustice and leave it at that? Why not let yoursel...

1. Paul is very clear about what he thinks about Christians suing Christians. "Dare any of you, having a matter against his neighbor, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?"(1 Corinthians 6:1 WEB) According to Paul, if there is an issue that needs to be resolved, he argues that the Church should resolve the issue. "I say this to move you to shame. What, can't there be one wise man among you who will be able to decide between his brothers."(1 Corinthians 6:5 WEB) However, he says that ultimately it would be better to be wronged by someone else than to coerce them into complying: "Therefore it is already altogether a defect in you, that you have lawsuits one with another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? No, but you yourselves do wrong, and defraud, and that against your brothers."(1 Corinthians 6:7-8 WEB) However, Paul isspeaking about Christians suing Christians.
