You may know from first-hand experience that conflict among Christians is costly. But just how costly is it? I admit that it is difficult to quantify the spiritual cost of conflict-how do you measure the pain, suffering, and diminished witness caused by Christians who fight one another?

Word In Life Bible Study • Conflict Management
It seems that no matter what one does, conflicts are bound to happen. Peter's report of his visit to Cornelius aroused hostility and opposition among some of the believers at Jerusalem (Acts 11:2-3). His behavior in Joppa, socializing with the hated and feared Gentiles, was unacceptable-even scandalous.
