Peace With One Another


Living at peace with governing authorities is practiced by living at peace with one another. Most leaders shy away from controversial topics in the church. Under the right circumstances, though, a dialogue within the church on a sensitive subject can help worshippers grow in faith and friendship. As Jason Jimenez puts it, “Think of a disagreement with a Christian friend as more like a baseball game than a boxing match. There will be swinging, but not at each other” (Jason Jimenez, Challenging Conversations: A Practical Guide to Discuss Controversial Topics in the Church [Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2020], 17).
