I have been hearing much on all three of these things lately, and feel like they all tie together. First if you are choosing to fight the good fight alone, you will surely fall, for where you lack in some areas another will be strong in them and where another lacks in some areas you may be strong in them. The phrase united we stand but divided we fall keeps coming to mind. If the enemy seeks to steal kill and destroy, wouldn’t confusing people be his best tactic? By gossiping or spreading rumors or partial truths about someone I feel is the main source. So when you, or a group of people has an issue with someone take it to the individual, if you are talking about someone who is not present, check your motives first, if you hear a brother or sister talking coarsely about someone who is not present be bold enough to put a stop to it. We are at war, it is unseen, and our enemy has been fighting it for far longer then we have, but with GOD going before us in all things, and us being obedient, by standing for and with one another we can truly be more than conquerors. So I pray that there may be unity within the body, that we may love everyone, especially when its hard and people are coming across as coarse, but more often then not they need love the most, for hurting people hurt people.
15 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’[a] 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.
1 Corinthians 12:12-14
12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into[c] one Spirit. 14 For in fact the body is not one member but many.
2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
