“The Bible says…” is a great beginning for a sentence or statement, as long as what follows is actually from the Bible.
In Matthew 18:15 – 20, Jesus’ teaches his followers how to resolve conflict in the church in a way that leads to reconciliation. I often hear people referring to Jesus’ first step when talking about unreconciled conflicts. When someone sins against you, go to them directly and try to work it out. Great advice.
The next steps in Jesus’ process are where I often find people going off the rails.
“Desirable” doesn’t mean everyone wants that attribute. It means “someone” wants that attribute.
