When you have something against another Christian, how can you bring yourself to go before judges who are not right with God? Why do you not let God's people decide who is right?
Surely you know that God's people will judge the world. So if you are to judge the world, are you not able to judge small cases as well?
You know that in the future we will judge angels, so surely we can judge the ordinary things of this life.
If you have ordinary cases that must be judged, are you going to appoint people as judges who mean nothing to the church?
I say this to shame you. Surely there is someone among you wise enough to judge a complaint between believers.
But now one believer goes to court against another believer -- and you do this in front of unbelievers!
