1 Corinthians 6:1-8 NLT

1 When you have something against another Christian, why do you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter, instead of taking it to other Christians to decide who is right?
2 Don't you know that someday we Christians are going to judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can't you decide these little things among yourselves?
3 Don't you realize that we Christians will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disagreements here on earth.
4 If you have legal disputes about such matters, why do you go to outside judges who are not respected by the church?
5 I am saying this to shame you. Isn't there anyone in all the church who is wise enough to decide these arguments?
6 But instead, one Christian a sues another -- right in front of unbelievers!

      7 To have such lawsuits at all is a real defeat for you. Why not just accept the injustice and leave it at that? Why not let yourselves be cheated?
      8 But instead, you yourselves are the ones who do wrong and cheat even your own Christian brothers and sisters. b
