Should Christians sue each other in court ?

1 Corinthians 6:7
Now, therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated? (NKJV)


It is sad and shameful when you read in the papers that some Christians would resort to the secular courts to settle their differences or disagreements over some properties or money matters.

It is obvious that those disagreements are usually over substantial financial considerations or they would not have to seek redress from the secular courts.

According to Paul, in 1 Corinthians, disagreeing Christians should not go to secular courts to resolve their differences. As a believer in Yahweh and with His wisdom , we should be able to settle the disputes within ourselves.

To have lawsuits among Christians is a real defeat and make the church look bad in the eyes of those non Christians ,as it exposes the shallowness of those who practice this faith. They should leave it to their most High God to decide.

We should seek a solution or compromise in an amicable manner and if the other party would not agree with our requests, then we should accept it and leave it as that.

If others want to cheat us, and we are not wise enough , we have no one to blame but ourselves. Let God be the judge and let him face the wrath of God.
