Watch the Christian who is always fighting battles, building their life and ministry on the need for continual warfare and always identifying everything that is wrong in other believers. While it is true that we must fight vigilantly against evil, and the evil one, it is not true that we should be continually at war with fellow Christians. There is not one good reason to be in a continual state of conflict with those who also love the Savior.

An old aphorism puts my point very well: “Those who are at war with others are not at peace with themselves.” Fifty-seven years of life have shown me how true this really is.
