Wow...don't even know the facts and already its a cooked up lawsuit? So, does anyone who files a suit bad? So the courts are not a place to air our grievences and have a judge decide? Your so bias....makes you a fool.

The last two posts involve name calling. What a shame. The facts will come out eventually. Both parties probably have some validity and the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle. But really resorting to name calling???

Not nice to call people names..By the way,the Bible does address that issue of suing..Here is an example..

In verses 1 Corinthians 1:1-3, Paul says,“If any of you has a dispute with another, do you dare to take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the Lord’s people? Or do you not know that the Lord’s people will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? Do you not know that we will judge angels?”(1 Tim 2:12, Luke 19:12-27, Rev 20:4).

Paul says that it is a detestable thing to take matters between church brethren before a secular, worldly, ungodly court of law (v 1). If there is a dispute between believers then these things should be brought before the church (the Lord’s people) and not before the world to decide (v 1). Christ has told us that we will reign and rule with Him someday and will even judge angels and even the world (v 2). God has said that we will be kings and priests and rule with Christ yet some Christians can not even settle matters within the church!

Paul was ashamed of such behavior saying in 1 Corinthians 1:5-6 that surely there must be someone “wise enough to judge a dispute between believers (v 6). Rather than allow matters to be settled in church,“one brother takes another to court “(v 6). Even worse, this is done “in front of unbelievers” so as to give the Church of Christ a black-eye and hurt the church’s reputation. The world will see no difference between Christians and unbelievers and think,“why should we join a group like that which is no different from the world?” The world must think, what duplicity – what hypocrisy! And who could blame them for thinking this. Jesus said that the world would know that we are believers if we love one another in John 13:34-34,“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Here Jesus said that “everyone will know that [we] are [His] disciples if we love one another. Love is not suing one another. Love is forgiving one another and being willing to take wrong and not retaliating.
Paul continues this theme of Christians suing Christians writing,“The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters”(1 Cor 6:7-8). Paul sees us who sue other Christians as having been “completely defeated already.” He says it is much better to “be wronged” or “rather be cheated” instead of trying to sue each other over something that could be settled between believers or, in the least, be brought before the church (1 Cor 6:4).
Paul bluntly associates these frivolous lawsuits with “wrongdoers [who] will not inherit the kingdom of God”(1 Cor 6:9). Paul classifies this type of activity with “the sexually immoral…idolaters…adulterers…m en who have sex with men…thieves…the greedy…drunkards…slanderers and swindlers”(1 Cor 6:9). Get that! Paul sees Christians who sue other Christians as no different than the immoral and idolatrous. Ouch! This is a very serious sin as far as God is concerned. And these types of sinners “will not inherit eternal life (1 Cor 6:9).

There is no room for justifying a Christian taking another Christian to court. They do not love one another as Christ loved the church. They do not love their neighbor as themselves. They may not have even passed from death to life (John 3:14). It defiles the reputation not only of the church but of Jesus Christ Himself Who is Head of the church. God associates this type of sin with sexual immorality and this type of sin is committed by those who will not inherit eternal life (1 Cor 6:9). The conclusion is that Christians are commanded to not sue one another but settle the issue in the church since Christians will be reigning with Christ someday. How can they expect to reign in the coming Kingdom of God when they can not even settle issues with each other? God forbid.

Oh GHHH need I school you? The verses you are talking about are often referred to disputes within the church. If you really believed this than if someone broke into your house you would give them a hug and offer them anything they wanted. How do you explain that? If you really believe that, then you need to be down at the courthouse pleading for all the prisoners to be released...But of course, you won't do that..because as long as someone you oppose is taking action against a possible wrong doing..then you will use scripture to call them non-Christains.

Do I have to school you? You said the Bible never said anything about suing..If you read the site I gave,you will find that you were wrong.It does. Also if someone broke into my house that is not suing.it is a criminal offense.You sure can get distracted sometimes.

You are correct,there is some verses pertaining to fools.Here are some..

Matthew 5:22 and Matthew 23:17; Psalm 14:1

1. Do not call someone a fool
1.((Matthew 5:22)- "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother,'You good-for-nothing,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says,'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell."
2. Calling someone a fool
1.(Psalm 14:1)- "The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good"
2.(Matthew 23:17)- "You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold?"

When Jesus said in Matthew 5:22 that you should not call anyone a fool, contextually He was speaking of those who were unrighteously angry. That is why Jesus mentions anger in this verse. There is a righteous anger which is not sinful (Eph. 4:26 - "Be angry and do not sin ..." ), as well as unrighteous anger that is sinful (James 1:20 - "for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God"). When God is angry with someone, He is always righteous in His anger. Jesus, being God in flesh (John 1:1,14; 20:28; Col. 2:9), can righteously be angry with people and pronounce upon them the foolishness of their deeds--which He did (Matt. 23:17). Also, undoubtedly, Jesus knew Psalm 14:1 which says, "The fool has said in his heart,'There is no God'..." Jesus didn't forget the well known verse, and God is not wrong for calling someone a fool, especially when it is true.

As a result, we see that the condemnation by Jesus in regards to calling someone a fool is in the context of doing it out of unrighteous anger, which does not fit the later citations of Jesus labeling the hypocritical Pharisees as fools.

This advice is offered up without charge but based on some experience: If I were one of the alleged Jamestown ALP Seven Screamers (Defendants), I would immediately obtained a certified polygraph addressing the alleged Facts affecting me in the Complaint. If my denial of the pertinent facts is supported by the polygraph, I would purchase an add in the Jamestown publication of record detailing the polygraph, including all questions, and the examiners opinion and certification. Don’t worry as to weather-or-not a polygraph is admissible in court--in a small community put it right out there in public.

Polygraphs are very reliable in supporting an innocent truthful person. A person in a gray area who is “somewhat culpable” will have a difficult time getting by a skilled examiner.

However on the other hand, if I couldn’t support my denial with a positive polygraph, I would immediately make a cash offer to be severed from the Complaint--And make a public apology. If the alleged Facts, 1 through 52 are any thing close to true, this lady deserve damages and these people should lose a pound of flesh and a little bone along the way.

Attacking the lady’s motives, her filing of other cases, or her being out for money is of no importance at this point.

Are there any preachers in this group of seven screamers?

Question:

"What does the Bible say about lawsuits / suing?"

Answer: The apostle Paul instructed the Corinthian believers to not go to court against one another (1 Corinthians 6:1-8). For Christians not to forgive each other and reconcile their own differences is to demonstrate spiritual defeat. Why would someone want to become a Christian if Christians have just as many problems and are just as incapable of solving them? However, there are some instances when a lawsuit might be the proper course of action. If the biblical pattern for reconciliation has been followed (Matthew 18:15-17) and the offending party is still in the wrong, in some instances a lawsuit might be justified. This should only be done after much prayer for wisdom (James 1:5) and consultation with spiritual leadership.

The whole context of 1 Corinthians 6:1-6 deals with disputes in the church, but Paul does reference the court system when he speaks of judgments concerning things pertaining to this life. Paul means that the court system exists for matters of this life that are outside the church. Church problems should not be taken to the court system, but should be judged within the church.

Acts chapters 21–22 talk about Paul being arrested and wrongfully accused of a crime he did not commit. The Romans arrested him and “the commander brought Paul inside and ordered him lashed with whips to make him confess his crime. He wanted to find out why the crowd had become so furious. As they tied Paul down to lash him, Paul said to the officer standing there,‘Is it legal for you to whip a Roman citizen who hasn't even been tried?’” Paul used the Roman law and his citizenship to protect himself. There is nothing wrong with using the court system as long as it is done with a right motive and a pure heart.

It proves my point that the Bible does address suing someone,and does address criminal law action.Someone stated that the Bible did not address these issues at all,and it does..Now here is the problem..If any person that is a Christian sues another Christian,is that Biblical? Something to think about.There is some thought on both sides of the issue.
Someone asked a question about what the Bible stated about crimes.Would arresting a person who committed a crime and trying them in court is Biblical,and your site shows it is ok.
I never said that a Christian could never sue in court.I just stated the Bible did address the issue,and in some cases they are not to do so,especially if the people are Christians.But I also believe it is ok to sue in court under certain circumstances,especially if the person is not a Christian.
