We live now in an age of instant judgment and opinions with little regard for prayer, meditation, reflecting and seeking God. Daily we are invited to judge, make decisions, evaluate, criticize the conduct deeds, and speech of others. The clamor of conflict is almost deafening. The Christian community is not immune to the conflict crisis. This sermon examines how early Christians resolved conflict among each other; the reasons why we can and should trust God and His word; and the plan of salvation as the only way to resolve the conflict created by sin. There is no saving power in anything but the cross of Christ.
