Ps: 55:12-14 “For it is not an enemy who reproaches me; then I could bear it. Nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me; then I could hide from him. But it was you, a man my equal, my companion and my acquaintance. We took sweet counsel together and walked to the house of God in the throng.”

The Greek word for “OFFEND” in Luke: 17:1 comes from the word “SKANADALON”: This word originally referred to the part of the trap to which the bait was attached. Hence the word signifies: Laying a trap in some ones way.

“OUR RESPONSE TO AN OFFENSE DETERMINES OUR FUTURE”! It imprisons countless Christians, severs relationships: It is the “TRAP” OF ‘OFFENSE”! Luke: 17:1It is impossible that no offenses should come.

In the New Testament it often describes an entrapment used by the enemy.“OFFENSE” IS A TOOL USED BY THE DEVIL TO BRING PEOPLE INTO CAPTIVITY!(AN OFFENSE IS A TOOL OF THE DEVIL)
2TIM: 2:24-26 and the servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentile to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, If God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare {the entrapment of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will}

Question if the bible states we shouldn't be easily offended than why do most church people offend freely and constantly? I try so hard not to personally offend someone just because Christ wouldn't willingly offend as in hurt someone or anyone. But people in church all they do is offend not with scripture but in fleshly jesters. I'm not offended by the word but I do get offended at people's lack of living according to the word. I dunno know maybe it's just me.

offenses are the toole of the enemy to put you in captivity
Many people are unable to function properly because of the wounds and hurts “THAT OFFENSES” have caused in their life! They are handicapped and hindered from fulfilling their potential.
Most often it is a fellow believer who has hurt them: this caused the offensive to feel like a betrayal.
Yet most believers are shocked, bewildered, and amazed when it happens, WE BELIEVE WE ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT HAVE BEEN WRONGED! This response leaves us vulnerable to a root of bitterness!

Those who are in quarrels or opposition—fall into a trap and are held prisoner to do the devils will. EVEN MORE ALARMING- THEY ARE UNAWARE OF THEIR CAPTIVITY! THEY DO NOT REALIZE THEY ARE SEWING OUT BITTER WATERS RATHER THAN PURE. WHEN A PERSON IS DECEIVED: HE BELIEVES HE IS RIGHT, EVEN THOUGH HE IS NOT!

Well I'm sure I'm not wrong just disappointed in how people can get too carnal minded at times. But I know I'm not in any captivity or wrong. I was just stating how most church people seem to offend others and not see what their realy doing. I mean come on I do understand what your talking about but I also know people just like crossing the line with their nonsense

What is the cause of broken relationships is the question.

If the thread originator is meaning marriage, I'll offer one quick answer to that one. One or more of the parties never loved the other from the get go. A marriage not based on being "in love" generally will not endure. Love is what takes one through all the trials of life and as a result, brings you even closer. There is also the saying "a family that prays together, stays together.
