Hello there,

In Proverbs 6:16-19 we are told of six things that the Lord (Jehovah) hates.  Recently my attention was drawn to the last of these, in verse 19b:-

' ... he that soweth discord among brethren.'

* It really made me take stock, and consider my part on this forum or any other.  How careful we must be that we do not sow discord.

* There is another verse which is coming to mind now in relation to this, Philippians 2:3; and looking for it's reference I find another, 1 Timothy 6:3-5a. 

'Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory;
but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other
as better than themselves'

(Philippians 2:3)

' ... if any man teach otherwise
and consent not to wholesome words,
even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
he is proud, knowing nothing,
but doting about questions and strifes of words,
whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
perverse disputing of men of corrupt minds,
and destitute of the truth, ... ... '

(1 Timothy 3:6-5a)

* What a list!

Mutual edification and encouragement, should surely be our motivation; and the sharing of the truth we ourselves have received, through the reading of God's Word. That God be glorified.

Just thoughts.
In Christ Jesus
Chris

'Let the word of God dwell in you richly, in all wisdom;
Teaching and admonishing one another
In Psalms hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your heart to God.'

(Colossians 3:16)

* Harmony! What a sweet sound!  (James 3:13-18)

hi Chris
Thank you for this post I have been worrying of late if I am making discord on the forum on many threads I seam to be the last poster especially on bible  buddies and I worry I am putting people of posting.
I know I have some strange ideas about some things and is that turning people of posting I agree with your above post it should be love and harmony that should dominate our Christian life.
I would value your honest opinion.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hello Dave (@davetaff),

One day we will know as we ourselves are known, won't we? Until then we will probably differ over many things, but there is no real discord among us; only discordant notes as we fail to hit the right note occasionally, or sing from a different song-sheet, doctrinally.

I will join you on the Bible Study forum soon (God willing). It is probably a quiet time due to the time of year.

With love in Christ Jesus
Chris
